Description

Le Corbusier and Britain traces the growing awareness of work by this visionary figure in contemporary architecture journals and the popular press. Contributions by such prominent architects and critics as Edwin Lutyens, Herbert Read, Evelyn Waugh, Peter Smithson, Jane Drew, Basil Spence and Christopher Brooker are accompanied by 150 illustrations, together with writings and drawings by Le Corbusier himself.
Also featuring the most comprehensive bibliography of British writings by and about Le Corbusier ever published, this book is an invaluable addition to the study of architecture.

Le Corbusier (1887-1965) is arguably the most influential architect of the20th century. Despite the fact that he designed no permanent buildings in the United Kingdom more than any other individual he was responsible for shaping British post-war architecture.
