This text traces the early travels (1907-1911) of influential architect Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, otherwise known as Le Corbusier. Through Le Corbusier's many sketches of Europe and the Mediterranean, the reader sees the beginnings of a great architect and designer. The author, also an architect, adds context and history to the narrative. Chapter titles are La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, Italy, Europe, Germany, and Journey to the East. The text will be of interest to the architecture or design student. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
