Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret by Hélène Bauchet-Cauquil,Françoise-Claire Prodhon,Patrick Seguin Pdf

Illustrated with photographs dating from the time period to the present, this book documents the architectural project and the production of the furniture, offering a definitive summary of this epic modernist enterprise. A further chapter is dedicated to the work of Lucien Hervé, the famous architectural photographer who depicted the city extensively. The architect, urban planner, painter, writer, designer and theorist Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, known as Le Corbusier, was born in Switzerland in 1887. In 1922 Le Corbusier and his cousin Pierre Jeanneret opened an architectural studio in Paris, inaugurating a partnership that would last until 1940. They began experimenting with furniture design after inviting the architect Charlotte Perriand to join the studio in 1928. After World War II, they sought efficient ways to house large numbers of people in response to the urban housing crisis.

Le Corbusier & Pierre Jeanneret - Restoration of the Clarté Building, Geneva by Office du patrimoine et des sites Pdf

The book describes the story of Clarté, Le Corbusier’s first apartment building, continuing the narrative into the 21st century. The steel skeleton building completed in Geneva in 1930/1932 is a prototype of the Moderne style and a precursor of the Unité d’Habitation. The building was neglected for many decades and not listed as a historic building until the 1990s. In 2007 the external envelope was repaired as the first step, followed by refurbishment of the interior, in which building preservation requirements were taken into account in an exemplary manner. The building log book by the architects and structural engineers is illustrated with numerous new and historic drawings and photographs, and has been supplemented with an account of the building’s history. The renovated building is presented in large photographs.

Jeanneret Chandigarh by Jacques Dworczak Pdf

"The City of Chandigarh puts us in touch with the infinite cosmos and nature. It provides us with places and buildings for all human activities by which the citizens can live a full and harmonious life. Here the radiance of nature and heart are within our reach." - Le Corbusier Upon India's independence, Jawaharlal Nehru, its first Prime Minister, dreamed of "a new town, an expression of the nation's faith in the future." The incarnation of Nehru's vision, the city of Chandigarh was the brainchild of renowned modernist architect Le Corbusier, born of his utopian dream of an avant-garde city, and his cousin Pierre Jeanneret, who oversaw production of thousands of objects that furnished it. Recently, record prices at auction for these pieces have brought awareness of this great project and its creators to a broader public. This catalogue raisonne sheds new light on this visionary urban project that is generating growing interest among design aficionados around the world. 400 illustrations

Chandigarh Redux by Andreas Vass Pdf

Chandigarh, built in the 1950s to a scheme by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret with their team of international and Indian architects, until the present day is regarded an icon of modernist urban design. Austrian artist Werner Feiersinger has recently travelled to the legendary capital of India s federal state Punjab. Inspired by Ernst Scheidegger s book "Chandigarh 1956"," " he has put together a vast pictorial account of the city s famous architecture today. This new book features some 300 of Feiersinger s photographs. With the artist s view and based on his own creative experience as a sculptor, he shows the expressive sculptural qualities of the buildings. He captures the place s vivid atmosphere and virtuosity and illustrates its continuous topicality. This artistic approach clearly distinguishes this book from previous publications on Chandigarh, most of which are of merely documentary character. The essay by Austrian architect Andreas Vass reflects on Chandigarh s history, its architectural qualities, and its future development. The title "Chandigarh Redux "refers to Francis Ford Coppola s Apocalypse Now Redux, the 2001 extended version of his epic war film of 1979. "

The Villas of Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret 1920-1930 by Tim Benton Pdf

The villas of the 1920s in and around Paris, including such modern classics as the Villa La Roche-Jeanneret in the Auteuil district of Paris, the Villa Stein-de Monzie in Garches, and the Villa Savoye in Poissy, constituted a radically new orientation for architecture that have made them central points of reference for all subsequent generations of architects right up to the present. This standard work, long out of print, reveals the design processes behind these icons of modernism, from the first idea to the occupation of the homes, and sheds light on the steps and contexts of daily work. It measures the concept of modern architecture against the built reality, and enables us to rediscover the architect Le Corbusier behind the myth. The continuing relevance of Le Corbusier's oeuvre today is underscored by the extensive exhibition "Le Corbusier: The Art of Architecture", organized by the Vitra Design Museum in collaboration with the Netherlands Architecture Institute, the Royal Institute of British Architects and the Fondation Le Corbusier. The author, Tim Benton, is recognised as a leadinding expert on Le Corbusier and one of the most important art historians worldwide. He now teaches at the Open University, Great Britain's largest university. Die in den zwanziger Jahren in und um Paris entstandenen Villen, unter ihnen Klassiker der Moderne wie die Villa La Roche-Jeanneret im Pariser Stadtteil Auteuil, die Villa Stein-de Monzie in Garches und die Villa Savoye in Poissy, wurden mit ihrer radikalen architektonischen Neuorientierung zu zentralen Bezugspunkten für alle folgenden Architektengenerationen, bis in die Gegenwart. Fernab jeder Heldenverehrung zeigt das Buch die Entwurfsprozesse hinter diesen Ikonen der Moderne, von der ersten Idee bis zum Bezug der Häuser, und beleuchtet die alltäglichen Arbeitsschritte und -beziehungen. Es misst das Ideal der neuen Architektur an der gebauten Wirklichkeit und erlaubt es, den Architekten Le Corbusier hinter dem Mythos neu zu entdecken. Der Autor Tim Benton gehört zu den weltweit bedeutendsten Kunsthistorikern. Er lehrt heute an der Open University, der größten Universität Großbritanniens undgilt als führender Kenner Le Corbusiers. Die Aktualität des Werks von Le Corbusier wird im Jahr der Neuausgabe dieses Klassikers auch von der umfassenden Ausstellung Le Corbusier - The Art of Architecture des Vitra Design Museums in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Niederländischen Architekturinstitut und dem Royal Institute of British Architects unterstrichen.

Toward an Architecture by Le Corbusier Pdf

Published in 1923, Toward an Architecture had an immediate impact on architects throughout Europe and remains a foundational text for students and professionals. Le Corbusier urges readers to cease thinking of architecture as a matter of historical styles and instead open their eyes to the modern world. Simultaneously a historian, critic, and prophet, he provocatively juxtaposes views of classical Greece and Renaissance Rome with images of airplanes, cars, and ocean liners. Le Corbusier's slogans--such as "the house is a machine for living in"--and philosophy changed how his contemporaries saw the relationship between architecture, technology, and history. This edition includes a new translation of the original text, a scholarly introduction, and background notes that illuminate the text and illustrations.

Voiture Minimum by Antonio Amado Pdf

A colorful account of Le Corbusier's love affair with the automobile, his vision of the ideal vehicle, and his tireless promotion of a design that industry never embraced. Le Corbusier, who famously called a house “a machine for living,” was fascinated—even obsessed—by another kind of machine, the automobile. His writings were strewn with references to autos: “If houses were built industrially, mass-produced like chassis, an aesthetic would be formed with surprising precision,” he wrote in Toward an Architecture (1923). In his “white phase” of the twenties and thirties, he insisted that his buildings photographed with a modern automobile in the foreground. Le Corbusier moved beyond the theoretical in 1936, entering (with his cousin Pierre Jeanneret) an automobile design competition, submitting plans for “a minimalist vehicle for maximum functionality,” the Voiture Minimum. Despite Le Corbusier's energetic promotion of his design to several important automakers, the Voiture Minimum was never mass-produced. This book is the first to tell the full and true story of Le Corbusier's adventure in automobile design. Architect Antonio Amado describes the project in detail, linking it to Le Corbusier's architectural work, to Modernist utopian urban visions, and to the automobile design projects of other architects including Walter Gropius and Frank Lloyd Wright. He provides abundant images, including many pages of Le Corbusier's sketches and plans for the Voiture Minimum, and reprints Le Corbusier's letters seeking a manufacturer. Le Corbusier's design is often said to have been the inspiration for Volkswagen's enduringly popular Beetle; the architect himself implied as much, claiming that his design for the 1936 competition originated in 1928, before the Beetle. Amado Lorenzo, after extensive examination of archival and source materials, disproves this; the influence may have gone the other way. Although many critics considered the Voiture Minimum a footnote in Le Corbusier's career, Le Corbusier did not. This book, lavishly illustrated and exhaustively documented, restores Le Corbusier's automobile to the main text.
