Le Corbusier (1887–1965) was the most significant
architect of the twentieth century. Every architecture
student examines the Swiss master’s work. Yet, all too
frequently, they rely on reproductions of faded drawings
of uneven size and quality. Le Corbusier Redrawn
presents the only collection of consistently rendered
original drawings (at 1:200 scale) of all twenty-six of
Le Corbusier’s residential works. Using the original
drawings from the Le Corbusier Foundation’s digital
archives, architect Steven Park has beautifully redrawn
130 perspectival sections, as well as plans, sections,
and elevations of exterior forms and interior spaces.
These remarkable new drawings—which combine
the conceptual clarity of the section with the spatial
qualities of the perspective—not only provide information
about the buildings, they also help students
experience specific works spatially as they learn to
critically examine Le Corbusier’s works.
