It was first published in France and in those years that The Athens Charter was published, France was at the height of the German occupation and the Vicky government. To make the modern architecture and the urban planning more efficient, rational and hygienic; the charter can be interpreted as a condensed version of them as a total remaking of cities in the industrial world.

Rubin, E. Its purpose was to advance both modernism and internationalism in architecture and urban planning as an avant-garde association of architects. To do a service the interests of the society, CIAM saw itself as an elite group who revolutionize the architecture and city planning. Its members were consists of some of the best known architects of the twentieth century such as Le Corbusier, Walter Gropious, and Richard Neutra, and also many of others who considered it for principles on how to formalize the urban environment in a rapidly changing world.

CIAM is considered of as an instrument of propaganda to improve the reason of the new architecture that was developing in Europe in s from the beginning. There were twenty four architects from eight European countries in the congress who signed a joint declaration during the event. EFL, , p. As I mentioned before, the congress took place in but was published in by Le Corbusier as an edited version. CIAM proposed that the social problems faced by cities could be resolved by strict functional segregation, and the distribution of the population into tall apartment blocks at widely spaced intervals based on an analysis of thirty three cities.

The members of the group who are mostly prominent European architects and urban planners prepared for the Fourth Congress of the CIAM in , they felt that their field of expertise required new definition. The delegates engaged in a common city analysis in search for responses to Europe wide tendencies in social and economic development and to paradigmatic technological change.

Mapping a broad range of European cities and metropolitan regions, the congress aimed to raise awareness regarding common challenges that the regions share. As Atlas of the Functional City demonstrates, CIAM 4 produced not only a compilation of beautiful maps of thirty three European and colonial cities in 18 countries, they also delivered a new and influential approach to planning.

He insisted on the fundamental principle that urbanism was a three dimensional science, and stressed that height was an important one of those dimensions. The urbanist, he continued, must choose between two tendencies, to extend or to contract the city. References: — Mumford, E. Thematic Mapping as an Analytical Tool.

It was first published in France at the height of the German occupation and the Vichy government in It was essentially a condensed version of the core ideas and principles of modern architecture and urban planning, which called for a total remaking of cities in the industrial world, to make them more efficient, rational, and hygienic. Though Corbusier and the CIAM were not the first or only people to call for such total remaking of the urban environment, the Athens Charter became widely circulated after the war, especially among European governments looking to rebuild devastated cities and house millions of homeless citizens. It subsequently also became a blueprint of sorts for American cities coping with the urban poverty caused by the winding down of the war economy and subsequent lose of jobs, especially among African Americans who had migrated to northern cities for those jobs and were now stranded in urban slums. It became a blueprint for the communist world in the s, 60s, 70s and 80s, especially in the USSR and its East European allies, which sought the most rational and efficient way to plan out housing.
