“France: Modern Architectures in History” is the first book to present a complete narrative of the unfolding of architectural modernity in France, dealing both with the buildings themselves and also the political and critical frameworks surrounding them.

This book is based on more than three decades of research on the architecture and urban design of the francophone world, dealing not only with developments within France itself but also the colonial context and the systems of exchange with other countries including Italy, Germany, Russia and the United States. The author, Jean-Louis Cohen, offers a new perspective on ideas, projects and buildings too often considered in a narrow, nationalistic perspective. He also maps France’s architectural and spatial development against its problematic search for national identity, the background of European rivalries and the country’s colonial project.
