Edited by Roberto Gargiani
A dialogue between architectural history and design, in homage to Le Corbusier's theoretical vision behind the construction of the Villa Baizeau in Carthage. The social, economic, constructional, environmental and climatic issues that, at the start of the twenty-first century, have called into question the foundations of the architectural project make up the theoretical background to the book devoted to the villa that Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret built in Carthage for Lucien Baizeau, Blanche Thiéblin and their family. The book is organised around two complementary analytical perspectives. The first is devoted to the history of Villa Baizeau, and the second is open to some of the greatest protagonists of architecture today, with contributions by Jean-Louis Cohen, Dogma, Point Supreme, Tim Benton, OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen, Atelier Kempe Thill, fala, Jacques Lucan, and more.
