In the 1940s master architect Le Corbusier developed the Modulor, a universal system of proportion based on the measurements of the human body and the golden section found throughout nature. The Modulor Rule, a two-sided measuring tape housed in a distinctive tin container, features the renowned system in striking red and blue with inch and centimeter scales on the reverse. The package also includes an insert with a brief duallanguage introduction (in English and French). The Modulor Rule is a perfect gift for architects and modern design buffs alike—an essential tool and important piece of design history, now accessible to all.

in1952 Le Corbusier was commissioned "to dwell in the silence of men of prayer and study and to construct a church for them". The result was his impressive Convent of La Tourette, marking a significant step in modern religious architecture. Beginning with the rectangular form common to the Cirstercian monastic tradition, he created a building whose stark form contrasts beautifully with the organic elements of the interior court and the grasslands surrounding it. The church itself is a model of simplicity, the cement has been left rough and the well located sources of light evoke a feeling of silence and reflection. The order s precept of prayer, study and reflection is aptly mirrored in the architecture. Like the other Le Corbusier Guides published by Birkhäuser, this volume provides a wealth of plans, details, photographs and information on this building which today is also a conference centre.

This is not a book for architects, but for all those that have suffered, consciously and unconsciously, from modern architecture and have wondered how it came about. This was largely due to one man, an architect called Le Corbusier. For some he was a genius, but the truth is he was a sham, a fake, a charlatan whose only gift was for self-publicity. He was the most influential architect of the second half of the twentieth century; his influence overwhelmed the architectural profession on a global scale, who swallowed his publicity whole, and still hold him in awe. For the rest of the world, the mere mortals, his influence was disastrous, as traditional buildings were destroyed and replaced by featureless boxes of varying sizes, imposing a dreariness hitherto unimagined. As usual, it was the poor who suffered most as they were herded into tower-blocks. These were often grouped into estates that ringed many towns and cities, which then degenerated into high-rise slums with all the well-known attendant social problems. This book exposes the myths that surround Le Corbusier, detailing the endless failures of his proposals and his projects. These were due to his profound dishonesty, both as a person and as an architect. His legacy was an architectural profession that believed, and still believe, they were designing buildings based on logic, functionality and honesty whereas they were doing the opposite.

From 1918 onward, Le Corbusier, who was not only an architect but also a painter, was engaged in conceiving and generating the idea of Purism, an activity he undertook in conjunction with the painter Amédée Ozenfant. Not surprisingly, paintings were their first tangible products in this field. Their reflections on the relationship between form and colour led to the determination of the so-called 'large gamma': yellow and red ochres, earthy colours, white, black, ultramarine, and a few mixed colours derived from these. With the term 'the architectonic colour', Le Corbusier (1887-1965) referred tot he profound link between this gamma and architecture. This book is an account of a significant aspect of Le Corbusier's work. It is about the way in which he arrived at a distinctly personal architectonic polychromy in the early 1920. His youthful works had been built in a traditional style, making use of local construction method and materials, and bearing the decoration he himself had created. However, with his Purist architecture, whose principles he formulated from 1920 onward and which are expressed in his architecture until 1927, he embarked upon a radically different course. His buildings were constructed in reinforced concrete, finished with a layer of plaster and then completely painted. The colours of this paintwork were taken from the gamma mentioned above, the architectonic colours. With his ideas on the polychromy of the twenties, Le Corbusier placed himself closer to Paolo Veronese, who painted the illusion of the landscape in the villas of Palladio, than to Theo van Doesburg. After the rift between Ozenfant and Le Corbusier in 1925, the latter entered a new architectonic path and the system of Purist polychromy gradually disappeared from his new work. In the 1950s, Le Corbusier gave preference to natural polychromy - the colour of the material - above painted polychromy. Whereas polychrome painting in Purist architecture had once been a.

The Winter 2012 (vol. 14 no. 1) issue of the Nexus Network Journal is dedicated to the theme “Architecture, Systems Research and Computational Sciences”. This is an outgrowth of the session by the same name which took place during the eighth international, interdisciplinary conference “Nexus 2010: Relationships between Architecture and Mathematics, held in Porto, Portugal, in June 2010. Today computer science is an integral part of even strictly historical investigations, such as those concerning the construction of vaults, where the computer is used to survey the existing building, analyse the data and draw the ideal solution. What the papers in this issue make especially evident is that information technology has had an impact at a much deeper level as well: architecture itself can now be considered as a manifestation of information and as a complex system. The issue is completed with other research papers, conference reports and book reviews.
