Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Le Corbusier, the Dishonest Architect by Malcolm Millais.

This is not a book for architects, but for all those that have suffered, consciously and unconsciously, from modern architecture and have wondered how it came about. This was largely due to one man, an architect called Le Corbusier.

This book exposes the myths that surround Le Corbusier, detailing the endless failures of his proposals and his projects. These were due to his profound dishonesty, both as a person and as an architect. His legacy was an architectural profession that believed, and still believe, they were designing buildings based on logic, functionality and honesty whereas they were doing the opposite.

To read a full summary of the book and to read a 30-page sample extract, which includes the table of contents, please visit the following link:
