The first comprehensive contribution to urban development in Switzerland between 1940 and 1970, Angelus Eisinger shows that road networks, suburban settlements and high-rise buildings are the result of complex and contradictory social change. 30 large-format colour pictures by Joël Tettamanti impressively refer to the "inconspicuous" presence of the plans of that time in today's settlement picture.
