Description
Few books of 20th-century design drew as much attention as Le Corbusier's 1923 treatise Vers une architecture, published in English as Towards a New Architecture in 1927. The French architect urged his fellows to cease thinking of architecture and city planning as a matter of historical styles, advising that they open their eyes to possibilities of the modern world. He illustrated the book with images of airplanes, cars, and ocean liners provocatively placed next to views of classical Greece and Renaissance Italy, while such mantras as "the house is a machine for living" changed how his contemporaries saw the relationship between architecture, technology, and history. This edition features a new translation and preserves the design and voice of the original book, with background notes on Le Corbusier's concepts and iconography and an introduction that considers the production and impact of the book.
