Des Canons, des munitions? Merci! Des logis. S.V.P.; Monographie du "pavillon des temps nouveaux" a l'exposition universelle "Art et technique" de Paris 1937
Boulogne sur Seine: Editions de l'Architecture d'Aujourd'hui, 1938. First edition. Hardcover. Shelfwear to board edges, front cover with one abraded area affecting one letter of title, small area of plain rear panel peeled, front free endpaper creased. Oblong folio. Illustrated throughout. Original cloth-backed pictorial boards. Le Corbusier's photographic record of his revolutionary pavilion at the Art et Technique Exposition in Paris of 1937, intended to embody "la science severe de lurbanisme" despite the bright polychromatic murals covering its walls and its informal construction. The title refers to Corbusiers objection to the French governments vast military spending in relation to the budget for housing, although this spending appeared to be more justified in the following year.
