A classic of 20th century architecture published as a catalogue for Le Corbusier’s Pavillon des Temps Nouveaux built for the Paris exhibition of 1937. It features a large array of photographs, drawings and plans, some in colours, and serves both as a manifesto for modern architecture and the use of new technology in housing and urban design, as well as an anti-war plea.
