Het idee van de functionele stad : een lezing met lichtbeelden 1928 by Cornelis van Eesteren( Book )

14 editions published in 1997 in 3 languages and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To many people, the idea of the functional city lost its former appeal after the seventies. There were good reasons for that, but the functional city is not something that will go away. To contemporary eyes, historic cities possess an enchanting and innocent beauty, but once they were fully functioning centres of craft and trade. Habitation, work and traffic are still the dominant factors in the structure of a city. The modern city is marked however by an unprecedented enlargement of scale. The idea of the functional city stems from the problems associated with this phenomenon. C. van Eesteren was no utopian, nor was he an architectural messiah. His lecture on the idea of the functional city in January 1928 was a down-to-earth appraisal of new design tasks that had so far been completely ignored. Now that the idea of the functional city is on the agenda again, it is interesting to examine why the pioneers of functionalism broke with the historicizing practices of their predecessors. Perhaps the choice they made was too radical. This book reconstructs the historic moment of that choice"--Bookjacket

The functional city : the CIAM and Cornelis van Eesteren, 1928-1960 by Kees Somer( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dutch architect and planner Cornelis van Eesteren served as president of CIAM, the Congres International d'Architecture Moderne, from 1930 to 1947. His tenure there was steady and influential, but has been little studied, as the rise of Team 10 and then CIAM itself as a global force in the 1950s have obscured the organization's roots as a cooperative that was first embraced by its Dutch and Swiss members. The city analyses that CIAM members conducted for their 1933 congress, chaired by van Eesteren, made an important contribution to what they called "comparative town planning." The Functional City focuses on that legendary fourth congress, held in the summer of 1933; examines van Esteren's legacy; and traces CIAM's early evolution through an abundance of little-known archival material

De gevierde Nederlandse architect en stedenbouwkundige Cornelis van Eesteren is vooral bekend door zijn werk voor het Algemeen Uitbreidingsplan (AUP) voor Amsterdam, dat in 1934 tot stand kwam en na de Tweede Wereldoorlog werd uitgevoerd, en door zijn rol als voorzitter van het Internationaal Congres van de Moderne Architectuur (CIAM), van 1930 tot 1947. Hij was een pionier en een zeer invloedrijke figuur binnen het zogeheten modernistisch urbanisme. Tijdens zijn minder bekende, vormende jaren in de jaren twintig, een zeer opwindende periode in de culturele geschiedenis van de twintigste eeuw, was de nieuwsgierige en getalenteerde jongeman echter steeds op het juiste moment op de juiste plek aanwezig. Hij bezocht het Bauhaus in Weimar, waar hij onder meer Walter Gropius, El Lissitzky en Theo van Doesburg ontmoette.
