L’industriel, l’architecte et le phalanstère

Invention and uses of the corporate city of Ugine
01 January 1997, 00:00   —  

By 1914, the physical and social space of the city of Ugine in the Savoie department was disrupted by the construction of electric steelmaking plants. In order to attract and secure the necessary labour force to operate the factories near the production site, the industrialist Paul GIROD and his architect Maurice BRAILLARD designed an original business centre.
