Book Description:

The Situationist City makes an important contribution to the burgeoning literature on the Situationists International. Emphasizing the situationists' initial phase of activity -- unity urbanism -- Simon Sadler locates the movement within European postwar culture, mapping the relation to mainstream architecture and urbanism as well as to more experimental architectural practices. Here, traced for the first time, are links between the situationist project and the ideas of Le Corbusier, Team 10, the Independent Group, Archigram, and others. A fascinating, engaging, and opinionated history of an avant-garde whose critique of architecture and culture seems ever more prescient.
