Roger Anger: Research on Beauty

Architecture 1953-2008

Published by Jovis
Text by Anapuma Kundoo.

This book is the first comprehensive monograph to focus on the visionary French architect Roger Anger, recipient of the 1967 Belgian Premier Prix International d'Architecture. A sculptural plasticity and a highly individual take on the Modernist vernacular infuse all of his work; but Anger, who died in 2008, will be remembered for his ambitious master plan for the utopian Indian city of Auroville, based on the idea of a proliferating, open-ended galaxy, designed to be self-sufficient and promoted as the "dream of a new city for the future" and a haven from sectarianism and nationialism. A graduate of Paris's École des Beaux-Arts, Anger arrived in India in 1956; within the space of a decade, he had risen to become Auroville's chief architect, and the essence of his work as an architect, painter and sculptor is reflected in that unique construction. The volume documents Anger's prolific and innovative projects of the 1950s and 1960s, which include more than 100 buildings, such as Grenoble's L'Ile Verte, three 28-storey housing towers, which were for some time the highest residential buildings in Europe.
