Le Corbusier (1887-1965) was the most significant architect of the twentieth century. Every architecture student examines the Swiss masters 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 Corbusiers residential works. Using the original drawings from the Le Corbusier Foundations 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 combinethe 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 Corbusiers works. Le Corbusier Redrawn features all of the self-sufficient and detached single and double-family houses designed by Le Corbusier since 1920 including Maison-Atelier Ozenfant, Villas La Roche- Jeanneret, Villa Savoye, Maison Curutchet, Maisons Jaoul, and Maison de lHomme.
