The human proportion and how the human body should be housed: an entirely new exploration of Le Corbusier’s work in architecture and art.

Few figures tower over modern architecture and city life like Le Corbusier. His dramatic rethinking of the principles and aims of architectural design made a profound impression on the spaces of twentieth-century cities and the ways that people lived in them.

"Le Corbusier – The Measures of Man" offers the most up-to-date picture we have of Le Corbusier’s achievement. A new generation of researchers and curators looks in particular at his lifelong study of human proportion and how the human body should be housed. Created to accompany a breathtakingly ambitious retrospective at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the book traces Le Corbusier’s life and work from his earliest days through his greatest successes and lasting influences. It covers not only his iconic building designs and bold plans for city centers, but also presents a substantial exploration of his achievements as a painter and sculptor.

Lavishly illustrated with nearly five hundred images – three quarters of them in full color – "Le Corbusier – The Measures of Man" is an incredible celebration of the master architect’s achievement. Introducing him afresh from today’s perspective, it will be absolutely essential for both his admirers and his critics.
