n°35 - Yona Friedman

Influential architect and urban planner Yona
Friedman was born in Hungary in 1923.
He settled in France at the end of the 1950s.
In 2001, he shared with us his reflections on the
city of the future, as well as his afterthoughts on
the World Trade Center attack. Today, in his
second issue of point d’ironie, he presents a utopian
vision for Berlin.
In the second half of the 19th century, the baron
Haussmann demolished large parts of the city of
Paris. On these sites now become unoccupied,
he built up the most modern capital of Europe
for the period.
In the second half of the 20th century, World War
2 destroyed the center of Berlin, which became a
large wasteland.
“ It was a challenge to build a new center, making
use of concepts of avant-garde architecture. This
occasion was missed. I do not know Berlin but
through a few short visits. I do not know but
superficially German culture and history. Even so,
being an architect, I could not resist drawing a
few sketches (not a project) of a cityscape of
fantasy, in order to compensate – at least for my
imagination –the lost occasion. The idea to
demonstrate this loss of opportunity came to me
while visiting Dessau (the Bauhaus) in 2001” .
Luckily for me, this « counter-proposition » found
moral support, in 2004, by Kristin Feireiss and
Niklas Maak in Berlin, and by agnès b. who
agreed to publish it.
