Description/Abstract

"The ability to see the world of ideas in visual terms and as a method equivalent to literary poetics distinguishes the work of Le Corbusier from other architects of his generation." A detailed description of his use of visual metaphor and analogy has been difficult to find in the critical literature. This article explains Le Corbusier's use of visual analogy and metaphor.
