Le Corbusier: When the Cathedrals Were White: A Journey to the Country of Timid People (1937–) [EN, ES]

2 August 2012, dusan

“In his brilliant and incisive style, Le Corbusier examines the architecture and people of New York. He loves the people but finds the architecture haphazard and in need of planning. Through provocative prose and revealing drawings, he proposes a new, beautiful, vertical New York.” (from the back cover)
