– A spectacular visual Biography of the Life and Work of Le Corbusier (1887–1965), one of Modernism’s most influential Architects, urban Planners, and Theorists

– Approximately 2,000 Images and Documents, many previously unpublished, feature his major built Works, urban Plans, Paintings, Publications, and Furniture as well as Sketches, archival Photographs, and personal Correspondence

– Rarely seen Photographs and Correspondence shed new Light on Le Corbusier’s Relationships with Josephine Baker, Eileen Gray, Fernand Léger, Pablo Picasso, Jean Prouvé, and many others

– Now available in a new smaller Format, Le Corbusier Le Grand is excellent Value for Money

Drawing on an array of archival material, including sketches, photographs, and correspondences, Le Corbusier Le Grand depicts in roughly chronological order not only the vast and varied output of Le Corbusier, but also the major events, people, and forces that shaped the life of an artist who continues to fascinate those in and outside the architectural world. 

Le Corbusier (1887-1965) is one of the giants of twentieth-century architecture and design. Born Charles Edouard Jeanneret in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, the self-named Le Corbusier was not only the creator of some of the most important and impressive buildings of the last century–Villa Savoye at Poissy, the Chapel of Notre Dame du Haut at Ronchamp, the Parliament Building in Chandigarh, India–he was also an accomplished painter, sculptor, furniture designer, urbanist, and author. His work and social theories continue to be a dominant force in the world of architecture and design, while his elegant bearing, typified by his round black eyeglasses, which are still today a signature look for architects around the world, helped cast him as an heroic figure out of Ayn Rand’s novel The Fountainhead.

The man who designed the 20th century – [Le Corbusier] arguably had more of an influence on the form of the modern world than any other architect… You couldn’t make a book like this about just any architect. – Beyond the architecture, reveals a great deal about the man himself. – It all points to a life lived enviably fully. – The Guardian Online 

Formidable and wide-ranging… Le Corbusier Le Grand is a feast… Every page is dense with ideas… A source book for the modern world.
– Jonathan Meades, News Statesman 

> Jean-Louis Cohen is undoubtedly France’s most authoritative and knowledgeable historian of twentieth-century architecture and urbanism. He divides his time between Paris and New York, where he is the Sheldon H. Solow Professor in the History of Architecture at the Institute of Fine Arts of NYU University. 

> Tim Benton, a highly regarded Le Corbusier scholar, is a Lecturer in the History of Art, Open University, Milton Keynes, England.
