Monograph devoted to Le Corbusier's work on the Philips Pavilion at the World Exposition of 1958.  Making use of Philips' advanced technologies for illumination and sound reproduction, Le Corbusier created a synthetic work of art integrating the properties of color, sound, light, and rhythm.  This work, the Poeme electronique, was seen by over a million visitors to the Philips Pavilion during the course of the fair. and it positioned Le Corbusier and his collaborators at the forefront of advanced visual media.
