Description

Here, Jacob Brillhart excavates the "visual thinking" of the twentieth century's pioneer architect, reproducing a selection of 175 drawings from the early sketchbooks of Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, whom we now know as Le Corbusier.Between 1907 and 1911, Jeanneret studied in Switzerland and travelled through Europe and the East, filling sketchbooks with exquisitely detailed drawings. Brillhart provides a physical and intellectual map for students, travellers and lovers of art and architecture. The first book to provide a succinct collection of Jeanneret's drawings, some of which are previously unpublished, Voyage Le Corbusier encourages a new generation to learn to see.
