Inhaltsangabe: Team 10, 1953-1981 brings together the complete history of this influential European architectural fellowship for the first time, delving into hitherto closed collections and archives, and bringing readers formerly unavailable documents and the insights that come with them. From the mid-1950s well into the 1970s, the ongoing debate on Modern architecture and the city found new life in this crowd of young architects spun off from Le Corbusier's influential Congr s Internationaux d'Architecture Moderne (CIAM). The members of Team 10 had assembled as a subgroup within CIAM, but soon began to hold their own meetings. Their lively crowd--which included Dutch architects Aldo van Eyck and Jaap Bakema, Alison and Peter Smithson from the UK, Giancarlo de Carlo from Italy, and Georges Candilis and Shadrach Woods from France--debated the architect's role in issues of modernization, the welfare state and consumer society. Their influential and inspiring exchanges were often sparked by the members' also influential and inspiring projects. Team 10 left a body of thought and work that still speaks to architectural practice today, and will for generations. Team 10, 1953-1981 opens with an abundantly illustrated survey of the group's meetings, events, and projects, includes essays from leading scholars on its work and its legacy, and concludes with a series of interviews with former Team 10 members--an unparalleled self-portrait of the group.
Über den Autor: The firm of Candilis-Josic-Woods was founded by Georges Candilis, Alexis Josic and Shadrach Woods, who worked together from 1952 to 1970. Candilis, who was Greek, and Woods, who was American, met in 1948 while working on Le Corbusier's Marseille unitE d'habitation. Later, while designing low cost housing in Morocco, they befriended Josic, who was Yugoslavian. The three formed a formal partnership in 1955. Before the end of the 1960s, they had designed almost 40,000 dwellings in France, including a great deal of low cost housing. All three architects remained disciples of Le Corbusier, and all three served as French contributors to the international architecture group, Team 10. Woods died in 1973, and Candilis in 1995.
