In New World of Space, Le Corbusier has produced a new kind of autobiography. It is a record in three mediums: architecture, painting and the printed word. Looking back on his accomplishments, Le Corbusier has condensed into a theme in which he sees modem art and architecture as an adventure in space, as a new conception of space.
