    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    leCorbusier became famous throughout the world for his unique contribution to 20th century architecture. His buildings and projects are internationally acclaimed and widely documented. Now the time has come to discover the man behind the architecture. Jean Jenger, longtime President of the Fondation Le Corbusier, has selected 322 of the most attractive and interesting letters from over 5000 of Le Corbusier’s correspondence documents, many of them previously unpublished. For the first time a quite different yet authentic image of the Swiss-French architect emerges: behind the shy and brusque manner, a sensitive even gentle person is to be found. Full of surprises, this volume not only reveals the private side to a public figures, it is also the portrait of an era.
