Reviews - What do customers think about Le Corbusier : Complete Works in Eight Volumes?

jaume  Mar 9, 2008
the paradigma of a comprete works of any architect, a presentation that has influenced all architects between its publication and S,M,L,XL.
good- fair  Jan 18, 2008
I received the package fairly quickly and the books were in great condition, but the protective sleeve was bandaged and beat up. However I was pretty satisfied with my purchase.
a must have  Nov 22, 2007
A comprehensive overlook on the work of the most influential architect of the 20th century. The print quality of this edition is not as good as the original but the price is now affordable.
Oeuvre Complete  Nov 17, 2007
The books are amazing and I was happy to get them for so cheap and in new condition. The shipping was also very fast.
The definitive statement on Modern Architecture  Jan 20, 2006
While there have been many monographs of Le Corbusier, this is the definitive edition. It is the set of volumes that inspired everyone from Alvar Aalto to Zaha Hadid, shaping the way we look at Modern Architecture. There is a typo in the number of pages. This set is massive but it doesn't weigh in at 176,000 pages. The 8 volumes, about 200 pages each, were originally released individually from 1929 to 1969 with Boesinger and Stonorov working directly with Le Corbusier. These are the original drawings and photographs, so if you are looking for glossy prints of Corbu's more famous works, I suggest purchasing monographs by Kenneth Frampton or William Curtis, which have contemporary photos of his better known buildings. Also, much of the text is not translated, presented in the original French. You have to have a great appreciation for Corbu's work to consider such a purchase, but given how rare first editions are, not to mention expensive, this is the best price by far for this invaluable collection.
