Item description for Another Modern: The Post-War Architecture and Urbanism of Candilis-Josic-Woods by Tom Avermaete...

Description: Another Modern focuses on the theory and practice of the architects Georges Candilis, Alexis Josic and Shadrach Woods, the French contributors to the influential architectural think tank, Team 10. Drawing for the first time on the archives of both Candilis and Woods, it re-situates the work of the Candilis-Josic-Woods partnership (1952-1970) within the international framework of CIAM (Le Corbusiers Congrs Internationaux dArchitecture Moderne) as well as within the French context of decolonization and modernization during Les trente glorieuses, the 30 glorious years between 1945 and 1975. Author Tom Avermaete argues that the work of Candilis, Josic and Woods entails a new way of analyzing, understanding and conceiving the built environment--an approach that is radically different from those previously propagated within CIAM. He reveals how this new approach to the built environment was elaborated in architectural and urban projects for three realms that changed drastically during the post-war period: residential culture, urban culture and mass leisure culture.
