Product Description

About the Author

In 1997, the French Minister of Culture appointed Jean-Louis Cohen to create the Cite de l'architecture, a museum, research, and exhibition center in Paris's Palais de Chaillot. His research activity has been chiefly focused on 20th-century architecture and urban planning. He has studied German and Soviet architectural cultures in particular, and interpreted extensively Le Corbusier's work and Paris planning history. Cohen is the author and curator of many architecture books and exhibitions.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an irritating book about an irritating man. It is true that Taschen art and architecture monographs usually represent outstanding value for money, however, in this case that cannot be said. Whilst the book is nicely produced and contains many excellent illustrations arranged in chronological order, the accompanying text by Jean-Louis Cohen is, in many places, incomprehensible and often downright nonsensical. Reading the introductory text does not give a clear exposition of either the life or work of Corbusier (Charles-Edouard Jeanneret) and reading the texts that accompany sections devoted to his seminal works is rather like joining a conversation that has been in progress for some time. References are not explained or clarified, Corbusier's texts or influences are often mentioned but exactly what the text or influence meant is not made clear and some sentences and phrases are just plain silly, what, for example, is a "narrow cube" ?
There is no critical appraisal of the ideas or plans of Le Corbusier, many of which were unsuccessful and did not work although he has, without doubt, had a tremendous influence on modern architecture. Perhaps I am asking too much of a small monograph, but beware, if you are new to the subject, and it is likely that you are if you are considering buying this introductory monograph rather than a larger tome, you will not be very enlightened by the text. Like many of Taschen's books a chronological summary of the subject's life is provided.

It is a pitty that one cannot find a nice large album of Le Corbusier's work. This is the next best thing that is still available. Unfortunately it is only a little booklet with not too many photos of his buildings and only a few of his other works.

I LIKE THIS BOOK FROM WHAT I SAW OF IT BEFORE IT WAS TAKEN FROM ME BY MY SON. HE IS A PURIST OF THE ART AND LIKES MINIMALISM FROM WHAT I SEE OF CORBUSIER THE BOOK IS WELL SET OUT AND HAS GOOD TEXT WOULD RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AND OTHER BOOKS IN THE SERIES. PICTURES WELL LAID OUT AND THE READING GRIPPING FROM WHAT I SAW AND READ THIS DESIGNER AND ARCHITECT WAS FAMOUS FOR WHITE BUILDINGS AND THE USE OF MINIMALISM IN ITS PUREST FORM.
