Charles-Édouard Jeanneret (6 October 1887 – 27 August 1965), known as Le Corbusier, was a Swiss-French architect, designer, painter, urban planner, writer, and one of the pioneers of what is now regarded as modern architecture. He was born in Switzerland and became a French citizen in 1930. His career spanned five decades, and he designed buildings in Europe, Japan, India, and North and South America.
Residents bring life into a house and shape its character. Photographer and social anthropologist Barbel Hogner was well aware of this phenomenon when she moved into the Le Corbusier building in Berlin as 'artist-in-residence' in 2007. This work captures the co-relation in between Le Corbusier's vanguard architecture and its residents with images.
Architecture with and without Le Corbusier documents two architectural masterpieces: the Church at Firminy and The Miller House. The church is a late work by Le Corbusier that was left unfinished for 40 years.
Attempts to offer an understanding of spatial issues in the field of architecture. This book elaborates the theoretical link between architecture and psychoanalysis. It argues that perspective remains the primary way of representing form, because it is the paradigmatic form of spatial consciousness. It is illustrated and intended for architects.
