This is an unconventional history of architecture during the French Revolution. It reveals how the French revolutionaries attempted to use architecture and urban planning to implant the ideals of the Revolution in the minds of the citizens of the new state. Their ultimate aim was to use the built environment to create a vast community across France in which citizens would be united by common symbols and shared rituals.
