While Le Corbusier's urban projects are generally considered
confrontational in their relationship to the traditional urban fabric,
his proposal for the Venice hospital project remained an exercise in
preserving the medieval fabric of the city of Venice through a systemic
replication of its urban tissue. This book offers a detailed study of Le
Corbusier's Venice hospital project as a plausible built entity. In
addition, it analyses it in the light of its supposed affinity with the
medieval urban configuration of the city of Venice.
attempt to date has been made to critically analyse the hospital
project's design considerations in comparison to the medieval urban
configuration of the city of Venice. Using a range of methodologies
including those from architectural theory and history, using archival
resources, on-site analysis, and interviews with important resource
persons, this book is an interpretation of the conceptual basis for Le
Corbusier understanding of the structural formulation of the city of
Venice as mentioned in The Radiant City (1935). In doing so, it
deciphers the diagrammatic analysis of the city structure found in this
work into a set of coherent design modules that were applied in the
hospital project and that could become a point of further investigation.
and other architecturally interested laypeople with an interest in
Venice will find the book a valuable addition to their knowledge. For
architectural historians the book makes an important link between
modernism and the historically grown Venice.
