Toulouse-Le Mirail; De voorstad brandt
Article by Joris van Casteren

"In Toulouse werd aan de overkant van de rivier de modelstad Le Mirail gebouwd. Progressieven uit heel Frankrijk kwamen af op het ontwerp van architect Candilis. Tegenwoordig is Le Mirail een grimmige voorstad waar auto’s in brand worden gestoken. ‘De immigranten hebben nooit moeite gedaan om Candilis te begrijpen.’"

Tweede deel van een serie over New Towns en uitbreidingswijken in Europa van Joris van Casteren.
