Le Corbusier's Pavilion for Zurich

by Lars Müller

This book titled ‘Le Corbusier’s Pavilion for Zurich’ traces the history of famous architect Le Corbusier’s last built work. This dwelling, which is also a museum, was initiated by Zürich gallery owner Heidi Weber, and the uses a variety of handwritten documents, exclusive drawings and papers to explore the thinking behind it.

With its abstract forms and colours, it represents an intellectual legacy of the famous architect in which the further development of architecture as envisaged by Le Corbusier is clearly legible. This book explains for the first time the significance of the pavilion.
