9 Padovan, Richard Towards Universality: Le Corbusier, Mies and De Stijl
London Routledge 2002 0419240306 / 9780419240303 Soft cover Good Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
Softcover. Condition: Good, with general light shelfwear to covers. Binding sound, no inscriptions. 237pp. Many b/w diagrams.

In contrast, each of Le Corbusier's buildings and paintings were a self-contained universe in themselves, held within a clear frame. Mies Van der Rohe fluctuated between the two ideals.
