Modern living

Le Corbusier: master builder of the future

Born Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, Le Corbusier (1887–1965) is widely considered the most influential architect of the 20th century. Whether private villa or social housing: With his radical ideas, designs and writings, he was not interested in renewing individual structures, but rather in reinventing the entire concept of modern living.

Le Corbusier's building projects developed over the years from early houses in the traditional Swiss style to glistening white purist villas to dynamic syntheses of art and architecture, such as those found in the Ronchamp chapel and the administrative buildings in Chandigarh, India. The ability to combine functionalist approaches with strong expressionism runs through his entire work. And the social aspect of urban planning was also important to Le Corbusier - he was a founding member of the Congrès international d'architecture moderne (CIAM), which defined “architecture as social art”.

This volume presents some of Le Corbusier's most striking projects and introduces an architect, thinker and pioneer of modernism who, even through his unrealized designs, will continue to inspire future generations.

The author

In 1997, Jean-Louis Cohen was commissioned by the French Minister of Culture to design the Cité de l'architecture, an ambitious architectural museum, in a wing of the Paris Palais de Chaillot. His research includes architecture and urban planning in the 20th century. Cohen studied architecture with a focus on Germany and the Soviet era, and dealt intensively with the work of Le Corbusier and the history of Parisian urban planning. He is the author of numerous books on the subject of architecture and curator of exhibitions on the subject.

The Publisher

Peter Gössel runs an agency for museum and exhibition design. For TASCHEN he has published monographs on Julius Shulman, RM Schindler, John Lautner and Richard Neutra as well as several architectural titles in the Small Series.
