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 to shape our world. Le Corbusier articulates concepts and ideas he would put to work in his city planning schemes for Algiers, São 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. Hardback. First UK edition. 1929. Translated into English by Vorticist Frederick Etchells. Introduction by Etchells.  Illustrations, photographs, plans. Central folded-map loosely inserted. Condition: Endpapers toned. Boards a little edge-worn with some dimming to gilt titling to spine, otherwise very good.
