Providing a new insight into twentieth-century architecture, this is the first English book on the work of French architect Fernand Pouillon (1912–1986). It includes an analysis by Jacques Lucan of Pouillon’s post-war urbanism and a critique of mainstream modernism and a description of material construction by Adam Caruso. A contribution by Pouillon himself, inspired by Aix-en-Provence, reflects on the contemporary architect’s position in a cultural continuum. At the book’s heart lie survey drawings and photographs of Pouillon’s key Parisian housing projects.
