The City of To-morrow and Its Planning
Dover, 1987 - 301 Seiten
In this 1929 classic, the great architect Le Corbusier turned from the design of houses to the planning of cities, surveying urban problems and venturing bold new solutions. The book shocked and thrilled a world already deep in the throes of the modern age.
Today it is revered as a work that, quite literally, helped shape our world. Le Corbusier articulates concepts and ideas he would put to work in his city planning schemes for Algiers, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Barcelona, Geneva, Stockholm and Antwerp, as well as schemes for a variety of structures from a museum in Tokyo to the United Nations buildings. The influence it exerted on a new generation of architects is now legendary.
