The carnets, in a facsimile edition, containing the notes, drawings and sketches made by Le Corbusier during his travels in Germany.
In 1910 and 1911 Le Corbusier made two long trips to Germany, visiting Berlin and Munich. During his stays in Germany the architect attended meetings of the Werkbund, coming into contact with outstanding figures on the international architecture scene like Theodor Fischer, Karl Ernst, Joseph Hoffmann.
The result of this experience was the publication of a famous report: Etude sur le mouvement d’art décoratif en Allemagne.
As he traveled Le Corbusier filled four notebooks, now published in a facsimile edition. They contain the notes, drawings and sketches made by the great French master during his travels in Germany.
A fifth volume in the set contains transcriptions of the handwritten texts and a critical contribution by Giuliano Ghisleri.
