Concevoir et représenter l’utopie : la diffusion du modèle des garden-cities en Grande-Bretagne, 1898-2015

Abstract : In 2014, the British government announced that two new garden cities will be built to address the housing crisis. The same year, town planners David Rudlin and Nicholas Falk won the prestigious Wolfson Economics Prize for their reinterpretation of the model developed by Ebenezer Howard in 1898. This paper aims at reflecting upon the return of this 19th century precedent which is often referred to as a utopia. In particular, it seeks to show how the representation methods used by Howard to disseminate and promote this model contributed to making it a key reference in the fields of architecture and town planning. This paper also aims at discussing the utopian dimension of this model based on a cross-disciplinary theoretical framework.
