Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes
'Lavishly illustrated ... a unique approach to one of the great visionary artists of the 20th century.' - Apollo
'A formidable roster of academics and a first-rate selection of drawings, paintings, photos and models.' Art Quarterly
In 2013, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, presented the largest exhibition ever produced on Le Corbusier's prolific career, encompassing his work as architect, interior designer, artist, city planner, writer and photographer.
The accompanying and handsomely produced catalogue opens directly with a photo essay by Richard Pare of the architect's buildings. Structured like an atlas, the following section of the book includes maps situating buildings, unrealised projects, places of biographical interest, as well as routes of tours taken by Le Corbusier.
Also featured are essays by an international range of curators, scholars and critics including Anthony Vidler, Tim Benton, and Bruno Reichlin as well as archival images and materials from the Fondation Le Corbusier in Paris.
