Werner Hegemann and the Search for Universal Urbanism

Werner Hegemann and the Search for Universal Urbanism

by Christiane Crasemann Collins

Addressing the life and work of a major figure of the Modern Movement in architecture and city planning, about whom very little is known, this first full study of Werner Hegemann (1881-1936) recounts his contribution to the emerging discipline of international city planning and his influential position within the movement.

The foremost scholar on Hegemann, Collins examines the theoretical and ideological basis of his belief in an urban universality to benefit humanity and discusses the criticism he encountered to present a comprehensive analysis of a leader in a field just beginning to define itself.
