Widely regarded as the greatest architect of the 20th century, the Swiss-born Le Corbusier (1887-1965) left an indelible mark on modern building design and city planning. Here is an authoritative exploration of Le Corbusier's greatest buildings. From the Chapel of Ronchamp in Notre Dame du Haut, France, and the Unite d'habitation in Marseilles, to the city of Chandigarh in India and the Carpenter Arts Center at Harvard University, these modern buildings - shown in more than 100 newly commissioned photographs supplemented by the architect's own original measured drawings and sketches - provide a tribute to the spirit, bold, functional expressionism and imagination that are Le Corbusier's legacy.
