Abstract

This is the first attempt to tell the story of Le Corbusier's lectures in Algiers in 1931 and 1933. Given a mythical importance by Le Corbusier himself I have used archival sources and contemporary press accounts to give a more rounded and nuamnced picture of what actually happened, what Le Corbusier actually said and showed and the the effect these lectures had.
