Coming from Greece, born in Bakuthe French architect Georges Candilis studied to the national Ecole polytechnique of Athens before working, fromwith Le Corbusier, on the project of habitations unit of Marseille, which he managed the with the American architect Shadrach Woods The adventure of the team Candilis-Josic-Woods began in In a decade of common workthese three architects based in France put the theoretical bases geroge a criticism of the functionalism and, through uncountable construction works, applied on a large scale the principles of a new architecture called “proliferating”.
They tried to produce new housing typologies, adapted to the economic and social conditions of the most deprived inhabitants.
The human being is in the center of their concerns. It is the feeling that architects have to possess with their customers; geirge the construction can give material satisfactions, the architecture has to bring something furthermore: Their absolutely new architectural reflection, centered on the housing, postponed from this of Le Corbusier and was closer to searcheson the minimal housing led by the German architects of the twenties.
The progressive abandonment of a rational and normative idea pull the architects’ team to take refuge on “proposals for an evolutionary housing”, integrating the problem of the growth and changes on the scale of the individual house. They approached the question of housing by giving the priority to the organization of the plan.
FromCandilis continued only its activity as architect and town planner.

He worked on several projects of housing and schools in the Middle East, as well as on the arrangement of touristic places. Insurrounded with new collaborators, Candilis conceived the village of Carrats in Port Leucate following the principles finalized before. They resumed the cluster and stem systems, Anglo-Saxon metaphors of a scientific town planning, seduced by a mode of organic organization of the housing, important for Patrick Geddes.
And the knowledge leadingto the friendship, strengthens the peace between the peoples”. He took part of operations of construction of the Mission Racine, program for the tourist development of the coast of Languedoc-Roussillon, for which Candilis was named architect in chief in For the team of Candilis, the operation of Carrats became a place of architectural experiment with social dimension.
Composed of bungalows with cubic forms, their roofs terraces, patios, the collective buildings, the numerous public places small squares, playgrounds allowed the creation of an ideal place where everything was made to aim towards an individual and collective happiness.

InTeam X with the concepts of Stem and Web reject the dogma of the functional zoning of the charter of Athens, and its measurement tool Zipaton: The concept of stem stalk is used as a way to organize the town planning. More concretely, the stem was a pedestrian continuous zone connecting the main urban equipments.
The central stem is considered as fundamental, at the same time social and material structure, the residential sets. He grows rich afterward with the cluster of ” grapps ” of constructions of little and tall heights articulate around the public places stem which go on in the residential islands. The concept will continue its evolution with the appearance of Web which ” is not essentially a system of traffic, but a system of environment.
It is the only way to establish the large-scale hierarchisation, that by its existence makes canilis a very small-scale individual expression. Web has to be a highly flexible system in a geirge of a big mobility.
Flexibility is guaranteed by the uniformity of the initial intensity of activities on Webso that he can be hung on on any point, and so that he can himself hang on to the systems more important to any place.
These connections determine points of very big intensity but first flexibility always stays and the points of density which arise as Web by living becomes polycentrique, keep their character georeg mobility. These systems will show, in their beginning, an intensity of ggeorge distributed activity, not so as to compromise the future “.
candilid The question of the largest number urged Team 10 to innovate not only on the programmatic or urbanistic register, but also in the esthetic domain. The architects are interested in the rhythmic of the numbers, thanks to the rhythm and thanks to the geometry, large numbers became handy for the composition and visually understandable.
The basic principles were a relation of reciprocity between the part and the whole, as well as the not hierarchical structure and polycentric which connected between them the various scales of the constructed environment.
It is in the continuation of the general current of the modern architecture and this ideological restructuring cnadilis will be born the operation of Carrats de Port-Leucate in The members of the Team 10, emerged from Ciam in the fifties, by their analyses, drawings, publications, teachings, aroused a profound renewal of the modern thought on the architecture and the city, because for csndilis A man Coming from Greece, born caneilis Bakuthe French architect Georges Candilis studied to the national Ecole polytechnique of Athens before working, fromwith Le Corbusier, canxilis the project of habitations unit of Marseille, which he managed the with the American architect Shadrach Woods A quote “The most important work which results from this work, from this agreement, from this perseverance, is the creation of favorable conditions to allow people to meet each other, to know each other.
