Abstract

This text intends to discuss the profile of three architects belonging to the past century: Enzo Venturelli, Claude Parent and Roger Anger. The aim is to compare their representations to prefigure their ideal towns. Interest is even greater, if we hypothesize and sustain the existence of a link be-tween these three personalities which is far from being simply indirect. A new interpretation of the three authors highlights common cultural aspects. The identified links open up new prospects for investigation, substantiated by an exam of the works of these three architects. In particular, a spe-cific element is compared: the representation – through the drawing – of a model town based on innovative, spatial organization in architecture both in terms of structure and shape. This proposal anticipates the “town of the future” in its different utopian, ideal or alternative aspects, also in view of their subsequent, cultural influence.
