Robert Furneaux Jordan studied at the Architectural Association London and knew the famed father of modern Architecture personally. This book, which peers into every aspect of Le Corbusier’s career is buoyed by this familiarity; here, he becomes not just the mythological Architect of his pseudonym, but a man. Assisted by lovely photographs and drawings, the book is given structure by its accounts of the Architect’s works, from unrealized concepts, to his most famed and ambitious projects, such as Villa Savoye and Chandigarh.
