Roger Anger, Research on Beauty
Roger Anger (1923 – 2008) was one of the most prolific French architects of the 1950s and 60s. Sculptural plasticity and individualised, timeless modernity identify his unique architectural language. This is amply demonstrated by some 100 buildings designed by his office in Paris alone. His three 28 storey housing towers in Grenoble, the highest residential buildings in Europe at the time, and recipient of the Belgian Premier Prix International d’Architecture in 1967 remain today an icon of the city and a spectacular example of his work. In 1965, Roger Anger was appointed Chief Architect of Auroville, a utopian city in South India calling for visionary planning, the site where in the last decades the essence of his work as an architect, painter and sculptor was concentrated.
