Item description for Le Corbusier: The Unite d'Habitation in Marseille by Jacques Sbriglio...
Whilst focused primarily on the Unite d'Habitation in Marseilles, built between 1945 and 1952, this guide also encompasses an overview of the four other unite blocks built by Le Corbusier in France and abroad. In many ways, it represents the culmination of Le Corbusier's research into housing - a period of studies and writings that lasted almost half a century. Over the fifty years of its existence, the Marseilles Unite has continually kindled intense debate and interest. It is now ranked among the world's greatest architectural works, proving - should proof still be required - Le Corbusier's belief that housing is an essential ingredient of architecture and vice versa.
