Item description for Le Corbusier - Pavillon Suisse: The Biography of a Building by Ivan Zaknic...

Planned in 1930/31 in extremely difficult circumstances, it is a minor miracle that the Cit Internationale Universitaire Swiss halls of residence, when built, so closely resembled Le Corbusier's original innovative design. The Pavillon Suisse has accommodated Swiss students in Paris since it was opened in July 1933. This monograph is the result of years of dedicated research into every aspect of the building - socio-political premises, planning, design and construction, the aesthetic and functional achievements it represents, and Le Corbusier's own renovations in 1948, 1953 and 1957. It is the first comprehensive portrait of one of Le Corbusier's most imaginative creations. The author, Ivan Zaknic, Professor of Architecture at Lehigh University and Visiting Fellow of Princeton University is a prominent Le Corbusier expert.
