Beschreibung:

Le Corbusier's Pavilion for Zurich uses numerous handwritten documents, drawings,and papers to trace the history of Le Corbusier's last built work. This dwelling,which is also a museum, was initiated by Zürich gallery owner Heidi Weber. With itsabstract forms and colors, it represents an intellectual legacy of the famous architectin which the further development of architecture as envisaged by Le Corbusier isclearly legible. From the first ideas and sketches from 1949-50 to the opening in 1967and beyond, the genesis of this exceptional building-the completion of which thearchitect did not live to see-is presented with lavish use of illustrations and documents.This book explains for the first time the significance of the pavilion, whichdiffers strongly from the beton brut of Le Corbusier's late work, in terms of its positionas one of the architect's central and forward-looking works.
