Jean Reynaud: Seer of Space

In this paper we seek to present both a translation of the Robic text and a wider view of Jean Reynaud and the times in which he lived. An English translation already exists (Robic 1993) with which this paper may be compared and which we seek to improve and extend with a postscript drawing from English and French sources on Reynaud. Although the acknowledgement of Reynaud in the history of urbanism has spread relatively widely in France thanks to the work of M.-C. Robic, her work (and his) deserve a wider appreciation, in order to diffuse the nature of Reynaud’s achievements more widely amongst Anglophone audiences.
