  • The MHEU | Paris, an open-plan city
    led to the demolition of ramparts and the incorporation of suburbs with new districts built around a more rational grid layout This involved the creation of squares street lighting and wider roadways a 1783 regulation prohibited construction of streets in Paris narrower than 9 75 meters Rousseau arrives in Paris How much did Paris disappoint the idea I had formed of it The exterior decorations I had seen at Turin the beauty of the streets the symmetry and regularity of the houses contributed to this disappointment since I concluded that Paris must be infinitely superior I had figured to myself a splendid city beautiful as large of the most commanding aspect whose streets were ranges of magnificent palaces composed of marble and gold On entering the faubourg St Marceau I saw nothing but dirty stinking streets filthy black houses an air of slovenliness and poverty beggars carters butchers cries of diet drink and old hats This struck me so forcibly that all I have since seen of real magnificence in Paris could never erase this first impression which has ever given me a particular disgust to residing in that capital Extract from The Confessions of Jean Jacques Rousseau by Jean Jacques Rousseau 1765 1770 The noblesse de robe aristocrats who gained their titles from judicial and administrative functions and leading traders had luxurious private mansions Cemeteries were relocated outside the city The biggest cities were divided administratively into parishes and districts This was the dawn of town planning Philibert Louis Debucourt Philibert Louis Debucourt was a respectable genre painter born in Paris in 1755 Debucourt abandoned his trade after the Revolution to devote himself to engraving until his death in Belleville on September 22 1832 The term genre painter is an abbreviated form of peinture de genre vulgaire or mineur

  • The MHEU | A guild for ragpickers
    1860 61 finding myself without work became a ragpicker in the evenings to begin with for I feared running into people who knew me To avoid being recognized I wore a wide brimmed hat which I took care to pull down over my eyes At that time I would earn six or seven francs every evening working until midnight or one in the morning When the fine weather returned and work resumed in my trade as carpenter I did not look for work but continued picking rags and I plucked up the courage to work in the mornings Earning only 3 75 francs in carpentry a day s pay in 1860 I preferred to pick rags because I earned more and I had more freedom Extract from Notes d un chiffonnier by Desmarquest in Le Travail en France Monographies professionnelles by J Barberet Master ragpickers even became rich themselves they bought the items collected by the piqueurs and the placiers employed people to sort them and sold them by the truckload to the textile industry bones and metals too It is estimated that there were 15 000 ragpickers in Paris and at least 100 000 in France in the middle of the 19 th century Chiiiiiiiiffonnier The ragpicker s badge A guild A philosopher The rag and bone man s round Bad times for the rag and bone men The fortifs and the zone The ragpickers territory Les Chiffonniers d Emmaüs Jopie Huisman ragpicker painter Modern times Les chiffonniers The Ragpickers Charles Joseph Travies de Villers Charles Joseph Traviès de Villers known simply as Traviès was born near Zurich in 1804 He soon moved to Paris A student of Fine Arts his painting was not a critical success A Saint Simonian and Fourierist French Utopian Socialist philosophies he took an

  • The mheu | Romorantin, capital of a kingdom for King Francis I
    he who would go through the whole place by the high level streets can use them for this purpose and he who would go by the low level can do the same By the high streets no vehicles and similar objects should circulate but they are exclusively for the use of gentlemen The carts and burdens for the use of convenience of the inhabitants have to go by the low ones From the Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci Some ideas were very close to realities seen in today s cities proving that today s impossible dream can provide tomorrow s solutions with a little help from advances in technology Romorantin Turning Romorantin into a dream capital was a real challenge for the Tuscan master Thirty years earlier he had drawn up plans for the perfect city for Ludovico il Moro but the project was stymied by Italy s wars The city of Romorantin was to feature many waterways in line with Leonardo s belief that all urban planning should incorporate flow the flow of people on various levels taken through large arcades between the noble and common quarters the flow of goods and provisions disposing of waste and channeling odors His plans for Romorantin s stables further reflect this sense of movement that permeated every aspect of his designs Leonardo had foreseen the use of machines to lift the hay to the loft where it would then be distributed by narrow pipes to the troughs along with automatic cleaning systems Extract from Sur les traces de Léonard de Vinci sur les bords de Loire et de Saône by Pascal Brioist Senior Lecturer at the University of Tours Plans for a city taken from Manuscript B Leonardo da Vinci It is hard to describe in a few words the life of
