5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Artsreadings on 3 April 2009
Format: Paperback
This book is a must reading for everyone and everybody interested in Modern architecture, because Le Corbusier is just one of its main characters. The book is lavishly illustrated and the explanations Frampton gives about Le Corbusier are a perfect introduction - and maybe more - about this crucial architect of the 20th century.

16 selected projects in 98 illustrations 14 Mar. 2006
By Eugene Tenenbaum - Published on
Format: Hardcover
ISBN: 0671206923 and ISBN: 0500580049 ONLY! This hardcover 10.25" x 8" (26 cm x 20 cm) survey of 16 major works from 1929 to 1964 on only 136 pages is mostly in black & white, is comprised almost exclusively of 98 illustrations, and was published in English in 1970 by Simon & Schuster in US (Thames & Huston, London in Masters of Modern Architecture series) following the first edition in Japan in 1967 by Bijutsu Shuppan-sha, Tokyo. The introductory part on 12 pages by Martin Pawley is followed by 98 pages of illustrations - mainly photos, as well as hard line plans and sections in B&W. Several pages at the end of book contain a list of works, biographical notes, and a bibliography. Of 98 illustrations, 75 are photos (64 in B&W and 11 in color) by Yukio Futagawa of excellent quality, well balanced, crisp, and legible. Like all from the Library of Contemporary Architects/Masters of MODERN Architecture series, it is very good among architectural monographs, and superior to the Masters of WORLD Architecture/Makers of Contemporary Architecture series (ISBN: 08076*), or Studio Paperback series published by Birkhauser Verlag under ISBN: 37643* (Basel)/08176* (Boston) or Artemis Verlag under ISBN: 37608* (Zurich)/18740* (London).
