Write a 8 pages paper on the city of to-morrow and its planning by le corbusier. The cultural context of this text, as developed by Le Corbusier, is the many international travels he had taken, just to study the nature of architecture in different world cities, while studying the motivations behind the establishment of such structures. Most especially, the cultural context of the architectural and planning philosophy of Le Corbusier is his visit to the Charterhouse of the Valley of Ema in Italy, where he observed the setting of the Charterhouse building, which translated to the beautiful and peaceful life of the monks situated there (Steyn, 85). This experience informed his architectural and planning designs for the rest of his career.

Thus, through experiences from traveling, studying and working in different cities of the world, Le Corbusiers emerged as one of the pioneers of the concept of modern architecture, and the founding father of the modernist movement in planning and architecture, which provided for the reconciliation of architectural designs with technological advancement, to meet the needs of the modern society (Frampton, 27). However, his modernist and contemporary architectural and planning design philosophy, drawn from his wide travels to modern cities as well as the Charterhouse experience, led to his propagation of a new urban architectural dispensation. Therefore, Le Corbusier has been criticized for disregarding history (Steyn, 83). Thus, this discussion seeks to interrogate the logic of this text by Le Corbusier, with a view to providing valid substantiation, that despite the numerous criticisms, the Le Corbusier’s urban architectural ideas are applicable in addressing the modern housing needs.

According to Le Corbusier's text, the City of to-morrow and its planning, “man walks in a straight line because he has a goal and knows where he is going” (Le Corbusier 11).&nbsp.
