The villas of the 1920s in and around Paris, including such modern classics as the Villa La Roche-Jeanneret in the Auteuil district of Paris, the Villa Stein-de Monzie in Garches, and the Villa Savoye in Poissy, constituted a radically new orientation for architecture that have made them central points of reference for all subsequent generations of architects right up to the present. This standard work, long out of print, reveals the design processes behind these icons of modernism, from the first idea to the occupation of the homes, and sheds light on the steps and contexts of daily work. It measures the concept of modern architecture against the built reality, and enables us to rediscover the architect Le Corbusier behind the myth. The continuing relevance of Le Corbusier's oeuvre today is underscored by the extensive exhibition "Le Corbusier: The Art of Architecture", organized by the Vitra Design Museum in collaboration with the Netherlands Architecture Institute, the Royal Institute of British Architects and the Fondation Le Corbusier. The author, Tim Benton, is recognised as a leadinding expert on Le Corbusier and one of the most important art historians worldwide. He now teaches at the Open University, Great Britain's largest university. Die in den zwanziger Jahren in und um Paris entstandenen Villen, unter ihnen Klassiker der Moderne wie die Villa La Roche-Jeanneret im Pariser Stadtteil Auteuil, die Villa Stein-de Monzie in Garches und die Villa Savoye in Poissy, wurden mit ihrer radikalen architektonischen Neuorientierung zu zentralen Bezugspunkten fur alle folgenden Architektengenerationen, bis in die Gegenwart. Fernab jeder Heldenverehrung zeigt das Buch die Entwurfsprozesse hinter diesen Ikonen der Moderne, von der ersten Idee bis zum Bezug der Hauser, und beleuchtet die alltaglichen Arbeitsschritte und -beziehungen. Es misst das Ideal der neuen Architektur an der gebauten Wirklichkeit und erlaubt es, den Architekten Le Corbusier hinter dem Mythos neu zu entdecken. Der Autor Tim Benton gehoert zu den weltweit bedeutendsten Kunsthistorikern. Er lehrt heute an der Open University, der groessten Universitat Grossbritanniens undgilt als fuhrender Kenner Le Corbusiers. Die Aktualitat des Werks von Le Corbusier wird im Jahr der Neuausgabe dieses Klassikers auch von der umfassenden Ausstellung "Le Corbusier - The Art of Architecture" des Vitra Design Museums in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Niederlandischen Architekturinstitut und dem Royal Institute of British Architects unterstrichen.
