First English edition, published by The Orion Press, 1967. A brilliant republication of the iconic "La Ville Radieuse" originally published in 1933. Using reproductions of the original images, this book is essentially a facsimile of the original publication with English text. At points verging on the abstract, this book addresses city planning and social environments to create a new way of living, looking at functionality, health, culture etc. ‘The Radiant City’ is a blueprint for the "present and for the future” as written in this 1967 edition, and the message remains the same today.
Condition: Near fine. Some very minor chipping to edge of dust jacket and slight yellowing to first endpaper. The spine appears to have had a subtle repair but is firm and reinforced..
