I've never read Le Corbusier's Le Modular, although I've often flicked through it's pages. Has anybody read it? It strikes me that Le Corbusier, as a designer who thought at many levels - furniture, interior, building, environment, and city planning - might provide a good little text / case study for the course. It would introduce a little bit of design history by stealth. And also the driving force of the modernists, to improve people by design, is as relevant now as it was then.
