The Stones of Fernand Pouillon

Adam Caruso, Helen Thomas (eds.)

gta Verlag, Zurich, 2013


Providing a new insight into twentieth-century architecture, this is the first book in English on the work of French architect Fernand Pouillon (1912-1986). It includes Jacques Lucan’s analysis of his post-war urbanism and its critique of mainstream modernism, a description of material construction by Adam Caruso, and Pouillon himself inspired by Aix-en-Provence and reflecting 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. This book is first in a series on ‘The Limits of Modernism – a Forgotten Generation of European Architects’.
