Summary
In 1964 Le Corbusier was commissioned to design a hospital in the San Giobbe neighbourhood of Venice, he died the following year and so his design was not built. This book offers a detailed study of Le Corbusier's Venice hospital project as a plausible built entity. In addition, it analyses it in the light of its supposed affinity with the medieval urban configuration of the city of Venice. Architects and other architecturally interested laypeople with an interest in Venice will find the book a valuable addition to their knowledge. For architectural historians the book makes an important link
