Le Corbusier: Ideas & Forms by William J R CurtisAn expanded edition on the master of Modernism, Le Corbusier, by award‐winning architectural historian William J. R. Curtis.
Originally published in 1996 to critical fanfair, scholar William J.R. Curtis has re‐issued his classic text with extensive new scholarship and contemporary research that continues the high standard of the original. Presented chronologically with a clear narrative, Curtis has worked tirelessly not only to document Le Corbusier’s key projects in detail but to contextualize them within the architect’s overarching philosophy of urbanism and art and the pervading culture of Le Corbusier’s time. With full access to the renowned Le Corbusier archive, Curtis’ text is lavishly illustrated with new photographs, plans and original sketches and a fresh new design.
Praise for the first edition:
This is not only the best single work on Le Corbusier – a model of scholarship, erudite yet eminently readable – it is also an invaluable analysis of the creative architectural process. It should be read and re‐read by every student of architecture. – Building Design
William J. R. Curtis is the best architectural historian writing in the English language. – Chicago Tribune

This year I am starting a brand new adventure: growing red potatoes in a garbage can. I read about this online and I was fascinated by it. The idea is to plant your potato seeds in a garbage can, then as the plant grows keep adding more soil until the can is eventually full. Then when they are ready to harvest you should have a whole garbage can full of potatoes to harvest. First thing you need to do to grow potatoes in a garbage can is to drill some holes in your garbage can. The happy husband showed off his manly skills for me by drilling them with his power drill all along the bottom and up the sides of the can like.
About This Article
Potatoes are tasty and fun to grow, but they can take up a lot of space in the garden. Just plant the seed potatoes in the soil, cover them lightly with soil, and continue adding compost or soil as the vines grow. Growing potatoes in a trash can allows you to grow a lot of food in a small space. This article was co-authored by Lauren Kurtz.
