Garnier, Tony

UNE CITÉ INDUSTRIELLE. ÉTUDE POUR LA CONSTRUCTION DES VILLES. 1-2.

ansB11086

Paris, Massin, (1932). 32x42. XVI; + II pp. + 164 plates, 44 of which are folding (32 are double-size or larger), comprising ca 60 plates with elevations and house plans, 60 with elaborate perspective renderings, and 40 with town plans. Loose as issued in printed, cloth-backed portfolio with ties.

Second edition of Garniers's extensive utopian design for an imaginary modern city, characterized by an emphasis on common property (including a large central building where 3000 citizens could meet together) and the rejection of police stations, law courts, jails or churches, all of which Garnier believed would be unnecessary under socialIsm. Architecturally, the scheme is a pioneering program for the use of reinforced concrete construction. In the decades between the first and the second edition, the Cité Industrielle ultimately influenced the architectural and townplanning philosophy of Le Corbusier and other members of the CIAM.
