We had a text which name is The Pure Creation of the Mind. It is one of the part on Toward a New Architecture. This book was written by Le Corbusier, in 1923 and its written for new generations of architecture students. This book has enlightened many year when it was published.
Author thought that architecture is purely formal thing rather than a copied last constructions. He wants to from architects, they do not copy to last models of constructions. He defended the modernisim of the architecture and hardly critisized some architects who even construct which copied last constructions.
This book is very important because it is almost a pioneer of modern architectural constructs and other things.
