For anyone interested in art, architecture, and history in general; this book must be in your library. With a witty truthfulness, Le Corbusier rips apart what architects around the world were deeming Architecture (with the capital A). Le Corbusier set off the quest of the 20th century, to find an architecture that was evocative of our modern era. This book is the springboard from which modernism found international appeal and shaped the architecture of every city across the globe. It's a small book with a huge amount of importance. Also an entertaining read!
