Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Analysis of landscapes designed for shared residential projects created during the period of post-war France (1945–1975). The three cases studies presented—La Butte Rouge, La Maurelette and Les Chatillons—are part of a larger examination of more than 200 projects realised during this time. The methods include cartographic and textual analyses, on-site verifications, and archival studies. These projects represent a little-known stratum within landscape research. By revealing the landscape designs of these projects, and how they were formational in the careers of significant French designers, it is hoped that a more nuanced revitalisation will be considered.
