'William J. R. Curtis is the best architectural historian writing in the English language, and that alone makes this book something of an event.' (Chicago Tribune) 'This is not only the best single work on Le Corbusier - a model of scholarship, erudite yet eminently readable - it is also an invaluable analysis of the creative architectural process. It should be read and re-read by every student of architecture.' (Building Design) 'It is as incisive narrative, informed by biography and illuminated by penetrating critical commentary, that this book excels.' (Times Literary Supplement) 'An admirable introduction to Le Corbusier's life and work. It is also a record of personal observation and synthesis by an informed and shrewdly sensitive author which will remain valid and fresh long term.' (Architectural Review) 'The most lucid and complete chronicle yet available of Le Corbusier's achievement. This book excels.'
