An industrial city,
by Tony Garnier

Texts by François Chaslin, architect and critic; and Thierry Paquot, philosoph and urban planner.
Quadrilingual: french, english, german, italian

 

On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the birth of architect Tony Garnier (1869-1948). This project, designed and drawn by Tony Garnier during his residence at the Villa Medici from 1901 – 1904 constitutes a reference in the history of the architecture and urban planning of the 20th century. This publication represents an event as this is the very first time that a faithful facsimile based on the original publication from 1917 has seen the light of day. Two contemporary authors present the project, replacing it in its historical context and questioning its scope and impact a century later.

 

“Une cité industrielle” is composed of 164 plates: plans of the whole city, of a neighborhood or a detail — alongside illustrations of the city in washes and watercolors. An atypical publication which reproduces all of the documents with the same dimensions as the original, faithful to the scale imagined by Tony Garnier, with certain plans extending beyond an A0 format. The large format documents are printed on a number of unbound sheets so that they can be “reassembled” by the reader. All of the documents are also printed at a reduced size to give an overall vision of the project.
