In the 1920s he built the Cité Moderne in Brussels, a cooperative housing project, and was invited to design a house for the Weissenhofsiedlung in Stuttgart. As one of the youngest founding members of CIAM he played an important role in its early years. This book is the first study of both his built oeuvre and his writings.
