Le Corbusier (1887-1965) has been one of the dominant forces in twentieth-century architecture, and many of the forms he created have become archetypes of modernism. He was also a social visionary and a writer of polemics, whose ideas have generated intense and partisan controversy.

Making full use of archive material, Curtis documents individual projects in detail, at the same time linking the imaginative activities of the artist to his philosophy of life, to his urban visions, to his paintings and sculptures and to the social and cultural predicaments of his times.
