fragile city

After the installations The Voyage Piece (2014) and Le Corbusier's voyage reORIENT ed 1911-2011(2012), a third work in the series is out now: FRAGILE CITY -- a book co-authored by Tülay Atak, David Bergé and Elke Krasny. 

 

FRAGILE CITY takes the Voyage d'Orient (1911), the formative travel of August Klipstein and Charles-Édouard Jeanneret (the future Le Corbusier), as a historic model to look at the contemporary urban condition of 5 cities today: Athens, Belgrade, Istanbul, Rome and Vienna.  With essays and photographs, Fragile City is a visual, critical and historical reflection on contemporary urbanization.
