Le Corbusier´s Plan for the Urbanization of Stockholm
The text in the link below is an extract from the book Le Corbusier’s Secret Laboratory – From Painting to Architecture, which will be published later this spring by Hatje Canz in conjunction with the exhibition at Moderna Museet. The essay by the architectural historian Johan Linton explains why Le Corbusier, who rarely took part in architectural competitions, nevertheless entered the legendary international competition for the regeneration of Lower Norrmalm in 1933. It discusses in depth the particulars of the competition and the attention Le Corbusier attracted in Sweden at an early stage.

Johan Linton is an architect, architectural historian and internationally-renowned expert on Le Corbusier.
The book will be published in English.
