Description

Tony Garnier’s Une Cité Industrielle (1904–17) is one of the most remarkable attempts to reimagine the modern city. A prominent French architect, Garnier spent more than a decade devising and illustrating in exquisite detail a plan for an urban environment that would foster both social and environmental harmony. Visionary Metropolis includes more than twenty of the plans, design drawings, and illustrations that Garnier produced for this project, demonstrating his ideas about how rational design could mitigate the destructive impacts of industrial development.
