Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First published in France in 1943 and translated for English-speaking readers in 1961, Le Corbusier Talks with Students presents advice and commentary from the master of modernism for young architects-to-be.

In chapters ranging from "Disorder" to "The Construction of Dwellings" to "A Research Workshop," Le Corbusier discusses his views on architectural history and offers opinions on the future of the profession, while touching on his own projects for the Villa Savoye, the Cit Universitaire, and the Radiant City. Topics such as architecture's role in our directionless society; the balance between spiritual values and technical factors; and the importance of space, proportion, and color are explored by this renowned architect, and still resonate today, almost 50 years later.

Our reprint of this classic text is a facsimile of the 1961 edition, now available as an affordable paperback.

Synopsis:

Explaining architecture to students requires a clarity and economy of expression that is not always associated with architects; perhaps this explains the popularity of our Conversations with Students series, which are succinct, informal introductions to the works of the world's greatest architects.
