Description

Le Corbusier Redrawn: The Houses presents 25 of Le Corbusier s small residential work (self-sufficient and detached singleand double-family houses) through sectional projections (perspectival sections) as well as plans, sections, and elevations. Sectional projections, compared to other types of representation, capture most clearly the relational dynamic among different building elements and therefore express most effectively the architect s design intentions. The book is the only collection of consistently rendered original original drawings (at 1:200 scale) of Le Corbusier s architecture. Included works are as follows: 1. Maison-atelier du peintre Amedee Ozenfant, Paris, France, 1922; 2. Villa Besnus, "Ker-Ka-Re", Vaucresson, France, 1922*; 3. Villa Le Lac, Corseaux, Switzerland,1923; 4.
