La recherche patiente. Le Corbusier. 50 years later

Tax included

FAD 2018 Prize for Thought and Criticism ex-aequo

In August 1965, the death of Le Corbusier, recognized as probably the most important architect of the 20th century, took place in the waters of the Mediterranean. On the occasion of this anniversary, countless acts have been carried out in his memory. Also, the Department of Architectural Projects of the Polytechnic University of Valencia, with the support of the Le Corbusier Foundation, promoted the holding of the LC2015 Le Corbusier international congress 50 years later in Valencia. Some of the invited speakers have given us the material that is published in this volume, also the result of the investigations that continue to be carried out on the person and work of him.
