Les liens entre l’espace urbain et la santé publique ont une longue histoire: les hygiénistes du 19ème siècle se penchaient sur l’insalubrité de l’habitat et combattaient l’industrie pathogène, tandis que les Modernes entendaient répondre au péril tuberculeux du début du 20ème siècle par une architecture thérapeutique offrant espace, air et lumière. La conviction qu’il existe ... Read more about "Villes en pleine santé!"
