Description:A design chameleon whose portfolio overflows with work produced in a number of modes and styles, legendary Swiss-born French architect Le Corbusier was also a true multimedia artist who explored and refined his ideas through the lens of different mediums, including writing, drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, and publishing. Le Corbusier & The Architecture of Reinvention brings together leading architectural scholars Mohsen Mostafavi, Charles Jencks, Daniel Naegele, Hilde Heynen, Peter Carl, Tim Benton, Fernando Pérez Oyarzun, and Stanislaus von Moos to explore how each chosen medium informed both his built work and his personal identity. The book’s centerpiece is an English-language translation of Le Corbusier's Le Poème de l'Angle Droit (1955), with 20 color lithographs in full-page reproductions. It’s a must-have for architects and the perfect way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the passing of one of the twentieth century's undisputed masters of design.
