Maison Blanche: Charles-Edouard Jeanneret Le Corbusier NEW EDITION
(1000 items available)
This title documents the creation and restoration of the first house that Le Corbusier realised on his own. Built in 1912 for his parents, the Villa Jeanneret-Perret was soon nicknamed Maison Blanche for its white plaster and bright Eternit roof. After standing empty for many years it was bought by the Association Maison Blanche in 2000 and restored by the architect Peter Minder. This new edition brings together details of new discoveries made during the reconstruction.The young Le Corbusier’s laboratory of ideas would become visible again when later additions were removed, the original furniture was reconstructed and the garden restored to its pre-1919 state. This has been brought together in this volume with details of new discoveries made during the reconstruction, new colour photographs and precise survey and reconstruction plans.
