Small Axons

These two books Le Corbusier: Houses and Pet Architecture have pages and pages of plans, sections and axons. The catalog of Corb houses, edited by the Tadao Ando Library, is a library of the hundreds of houses he designed. While Corb has a huge body of work, most of these houses are not among the published. The Pet Architecture book by Atelier Bow-Wow investigates the typology of miniature projects within the remainder lots in the Japanese cityscape. Both are definitely worth checking out and are well worth the price.
