n°24 - Yona Friedman

Yona Friedman (b. 1923 in Hungary) settled in
Paris in 1957. An influential architect and urban
designer, he also works in the fields of sociology,
economics, mathematics, philosophy and art; and
for many years he has been involved in the issue of
housing in the Third World.
He rose to prominence in the early 1960s with
his manifesto L’Architecture Mobile (Mobile
Architecture) and its elaboration in La Ville
Spatiale (the Spatial City). He later developed
simple manuals in the form of comic books that
enabled people to make decisions about the design
of their own living environment. Central themes
in Friedman’s work are flexibility and individual
freedom. He believes that the architect, rather
than having an autonomous point of view, should
instead be there to serve the users and offer advice
on technical and organizational matters.
Friedman’s project for Point d’ironie was created
in the Spring of 2001. On September 17, he
agreed to share with us a few of his “afterthoughts”
on the World Trade Center attack



Practical guide

For a period of 10 days after you receive your parcel, will pay for the cost of returning any articles you do not wish to keep (offer valid only for packages posted in Metropolitan France).

In each package you will find a label marked Colissimo Services France, together with a RETURNS VOUCHER.
All you have to do is place this RETURNS VOUCHER inside your package (this is necessary for your order to be processed), stick the Colissimo Services France label on the outside and take it to the post office. Your parcel will be given priority treatment and we will proceed to reimburse the returned products.
So in future you can try on the goods you have purchased in the peace of your own home and take your time to decide.
