Item description for Immeuble 24 N.C. et Appartement Le Corbusier / Apartment Block 24 N.C. and Le Corbusier's Home (Le Corbusier Guides (englisch/französisch)) by Jacques Sbriglio...

The construction of the apartment block at number 24, rue Nungesser et Coli in Paris, between 1931 and 1934, was an important milestone for Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret. It was the first opportunity offered to them in France to put to the test theories on urbanism and architecture, which they had been working on since the 1920s ("cinq points de l'architecture moderne"), and marks an important stage on the path to Brutalism. And it is of all the more interest because of the apartment and art studio Le Corbusier designed for the top two floors of the building and in which he lived from 1934 until his death in 1965. Historical documents and drawings make this handy-sized volume an invaluable guide for visitors and a practical introduction for all architectural enthusiasts.

Reviews - What do customers think about Immeuble 24 N.C. et Appartement Le Corbusier / Apartment Block 24 N.C. and Le Corbusier's Home (Le Corbusier Guides (englisch/französisch))?

A handy guide to Le Corbusier's own apartment in Paris.  Apr 30, 1998
It is a useful guide for the Le Corbusier scholar especially while travelling to Paris, and for the rest Deborah Gans' excellent guide will suffice. This guide looks at Le Corbusier's Apartment in Paris as a crytallization of his urban ideas which were never realized in Paris at the scale he desired. The guide discusses the history of the project and highlights Le Corbusier's preferences for the Mediterranean vernacular and the adaptation of an eclectic interior with object trouves, in his own "home". The other apartments in the complex are not discussed very much. It does throw some light on Le Corbusier's personality which seemed to grow increasingly cold and his withdrawal into his private studio with its rough cave-like interior. The drawings and photographs look dated. It offers a bilingual text. Buy it if you are fascinated by Le Corbusier and his ability for expert manipulations of contradictory themes within one building.
