Architecture books for student

Book overview

1.Probably the most important book in Modern Architecture. Certainly the most villified over the years, especially since the death of Le Corbusier.

2.In it he laid the ground work for Modern Architecture, extolling the virtues of an architecture that was the product of the machine age rather than a pastiche of historical styles.

3 Le Corbusier illustrated the principles which he felt should govern architecture, drawing from historical references such as the Parthenon, but stressing the need to come up with a new proportional system reflective of concrete construction.
