Description
Summary:This study demonstrates how several bodies of knowledge - architectural, sociological, technological, and bureaucratic - shaped postwar modernism and the making of contemporary urban France.

The book traces how this evolution resulted from an unprecedented upshift in production, ranging from mass housing and community centres to entirely new towns.
