I am completing this blog with mentions of some old writings. This post is about L'Architecture des Villes, a book I wrote in 1992-95 together with the recognized architect Ricardo Bofill, in whose Barcelona firm I had been a trainee in the spring of 1992 (yes, just before the Olympics).
L'Architecture des Villes, which was published in French by Odile Jacob in 1995, looks at how urban design has evolved across history, ending with a dialogue with Bofill on the situation of the French banlieues. It was a great experience for me to write that book - at the time I had also started to study architecture, in parallel with my more traditional French engineer's training - and I'm very gratefull to Ricardo Bofill for having generously given me the opportunity to co-sign it with him.
The book is still available on Amazon.
