Rob Mallet-Stevens. Album “A Modern City”, 1922. Pochoir coloured plates. London, Benn Brothers, Via Nosbüsch-Stucke

“In 1911, he began publishing pochoir drawings of modern villas and other buildings in a geometric style influenced by Josef Hoffmann, Frank Lloyd Wright and Charles Rennie Mackintosh. These led to the influential album. Unlike Le Corbusier, Mallet-Stevens had no interest in radicalizing the urban plan. He simply took each of the standard buildings of the modern town, from the fire station to the individual house, and applied a ‘modern’ style to it. It is possible, however, that these illustrations proved much more influential for contemporary architects than Le Corbusier’s austere urban and architectural projects.” (Charlotte Benton, Art Deco 1910-1939, V&A)
