Confronter les codes et les écoles artistiques entre l. a. France et l'Italie en matière d'urbanisme

Dans cet ouvrage initialement publié en 1984 et rapidement devenu introuvable, Jean-Louis Cohen examine un moment-clé pour l. a. théorie et l. a. pratique de l’architecture contemporaine, marqué par les échanges intenses des années 1970 entre l’Italie et l. a. France. Il en fut à l. a. fois l’un des témoins et l’un des acteurs.

Cette chronique permet de découvrir les explanations et les effets de l. a. coupure constatée entre les architectes et les intellectuels en France, depuis l. a. moitié du XIXe siècle, au travers d’une réflexion sur les rares contacts qu’ils entretinrent et d’une réflexion sur les malentendus qui jalonnèrent leurs rapports.

Cette coupure est rendue particulièrement patente par los angeles war of words des occasions respectives de l. a. France et de l’Italie. Au début des années 1970, une véritable fascination pour los angeles tradition architecturale italienne saisit les Français, attentifs aux nouveaux discours sur l’urbanité et sur l’histoire. Une point of view s’ouvrit ainsi pour le dépassement du fossé existant, un nouveau modèle conduisant les architectes à se penser comme concepteurs et comme intellectuels.

Le livre restitue en particulier les trajectoires d’Ernesto Nathan Rogers, Aldo Rossi, Vittorio Gregotti et Manfredo Tafuri, tout autant que celles des italophiles comme Bernard Huet ou Philippe Panerai.

Structuralo-marxiste il était, structuralo-marxiste il demeure ? Oui, quelque half entre l’Hudson et los angeles rue des Ecoles, I’habitude des ponts frontaliers sans doute. - (Jean-Louis Violeau, Revue Urbanisme)
