Le Corbusier: The Complete BuildingsLe Corbusier: The Complete Buildings

By Cemal Emden

This visual tour of every one of Le Corbusier's buildings across the
world represents the most comprehensive photographic archive of the
architect's work. In 2010, photographer Cemal Emden set out to document
every building designed by the master architect Le Corbusier. Traveling
through three continents, Emden photographed all the 52 buildings that
remain standing. Each of these buildings is featured in the book and
captured from multiple angles, with images revealing their exterior and
interior details. Interspersed throughout the book are texts by leading
architects and scholars, whose commentaries are as fascinating and
varied as the buildings themselves. The book closes with an illustrated,
annotated index. From the early Villa Vallet, built in Switzerland in
1905, to his groundbreaking Unité d'Habitation in Marseille, completed
in 1947, this ambitious project presents the entirety and diversity of
Le Corbusier's architectural output. Visually arresting and endlessly
engaging, it will appeal to the architect's many fans, as well as anyone
interested in the foundation of modern architecture.
