Architect Antonio Amado has written a new book about the work of Le Corbusier. Published by The MIT Press, and released on March 4, 2011, it is an exploration into Corbusier's love of the automobile. As one would expect, the automobile envisioned by Le Corbusier is a disciplined yet sculptural example of modern design. I wish this vehicle was available for purchase today. With trends toward compact and efficient vehicles, in the spirt of the Isetta, and the Citron 2CV, it would be a welcome vision on the road.
