Administrative History

The International Congress for Modern Architecture (Congrès internationaux d’architecture moderne, or CIAM) was an influential association of modern architects and city planners united in a search for solutions to the problems of urban areas. Founded in 1928 at the Château de La Sarraz, Switzerland by Le Corbusier, Sigfried Giedion and architectural patroness Hélène de Mandrot, CIAM served for several decades as the organizational center of the modern movement in architecture. Between 1928 and 1957, CIAM organized a series of ten formal congresses and additional CIAM council or CIRPAC meetings under the directorship of its CIRPAC committee (Comité international pour la réalisation des problèmes d'architecture contemporaine), together with an eleventh congress in 1959 under reformulated directorship. These meetings provided a professional forum for debating and disseminating theoretical, aesthetic and technical developments and achievements in the field of modern architecture and city planning.
Although Belgian participation in CIAM dated from the first La Sarraz conference, the Belgian section secretariat was formed in 1934, through the collaboration of the Groupe L’Equerre (meaning "square", an architectural drafting tool) and Victor Bourgeois, a founding CIAM member who had distinguished himself with the presentation of his housing complex La Cité Moderne at CIAM III, Brussels, 1930. L’Equerre was composed of five Liège-based architects - Paul Fitschy, Ivon Falise, Edgard Klutz, Émile Parent and A. Tibaux - who had met ca. 1928 during their architectural studies at the Académie de Liège (presumably the Académie royale des beaux-arts de Liège), and who at the time of their joining CIAM were editing a journal, called L’Equerre, which championed the cause of modern architecture and city planning (see related collection: L'Equerre; Records, 1928-1960; accn. no. 850864). Other notable modern architects including Huib Hoste (a founding CIAM member along with Bourgeois), L. H. de Koninck, Gaston Eysselinck and Renaat Braem augmented the section membership. The Belgian section secretariat was located in the offices of L’Equerre; Fitschy served as secretary, Bourgeois as section president and first delegate, and De Koninck as second delegate. In 1937 the Belgian section proposed two contributions to CIAM V in Paris: Hoste’s urban development plan for the right bank of the Scheldt in Antwerp, and Bourgeois’s survey of Charleroi; additionally, Fitschy and Braem participated in the 2nd CIAM commission, "Cas d'application des villes". In 1938, at the behest of CIRPAC, the section was split into three geographic subdivisions - one each for Brussels, Antwerp and Liège - to work independently under Belgian section leadership. The Belgian section, and particularly the Liège group headed by L’Equerre, worked in earnest to prepare a proposed CIAM VI in Liège, which would have taken place in September of 1939, concurrently with the "Exposition internationale de l’eau", held to mark the 30 July 1939 opening of the Albert Canal, linking Liège with Antwerp and the North Sea. This opportunity to promote Liège in the wider architectural community was shattered, however, by the cancellation of that year’s congress at the start of World War II (see Box 6).
The section remained inactive throughout the war, but revived with the announcement of CIAM VI in Bridgwater, planned for 1947. Troubles beset the Belgian section’s preparations for this congress, which only one Belgian member attended. In view of his absence, Bourgeois was dismissed by CIRPAC as first Belgian delegate, to be replaced by Fitschy; Léon Stynen later took on the role of second Belgian delegate. Bourgeois’s subsequent resignation from CIAM placed Fitschy in an even more responsible role towards Belgian section activities, a role he had hoped would be minimized with the 1948 reorganization of the Brussels, Antwerp and Liège sections into independent groups responsible directly to CIAM. Additionally, the group’s decision to expel several members (among them Hoste and Falise) for suspected or proven Nazi sympathies and collaboration led to a lengthy contention with Hoste, who pressed insistently but unsuccessfully for readmission. Also during this period, the Belgian section began encouraging the involvement of a younger generation of architects and offering educational opportunities to students still in the course of their architectural studies, a directive then being instituted on a CIAM-wide basis.
Fitschy’s hopes that the reorganization would result in a revitalization of the section were not fulfilled, and in April of 1951 he formally renounced responsibility for Belgian section activities, thereafter devoting his energies to the Liège section, which had been joined by the Groupes EGAU and Planning. Stynen was to undertake responsibilities for the independent Brussels-Antwerp section. Notwithstanding Fitschy’s decision, born of frustration at the perceived lack of energy and responsiveness in the section, several Belgian grids, or city planning project charts, were presented at subsequent CIAM conferences. L’Equerre’s grid for the city of Flémalle-Haute (Box 8, f. 3; Box 10*, f. 7; Box 11*; Flat file folder 1**), a planned suburb west of Liège, exhibited at the 1951 CIAM VIII, Hoddesdon, was featured in the publication The heart of the city, and at least two Belgian grids, one for the "Unité d’habitation Anvers-Kiel" and one for a construction in Liège by Groupe EGAU, were presented at the 1953 CIAM IX, Aix-en-Provence (see Box 8, f. 8 for accompanying analyses).
CIAM IX also saw the emergence of Team X (Team 10), an alliance of younger architects who rejected the ideas of the old-guard CIAM, based on the 1933 Athens Charter, as too rigidly mechanistic or functionalist. Team X sought instead to explore human associations within an environment, and felt moreover that CIAM had grown too large, with loss of its original vigor. After formalizing its agenda in a meeting in Doorn in January of 1954, Team X was invited at the 1954 Paris CIRPAC meeting to set the agenda for the 1956 CIAM X in Dubrovnik, with J. B. Bakema as acting secretary. The experiences at Dubrovnik hardened the rift between the two factions, and a debate ensued over whether to dissolve or reorganize CIAM. Reorganization was chosen, and in 1957 at La Sarraz CIAM was renamed "CIAM: Research Group for Social and Visual Relationships (CIAM: Groupe de recherches pour les interrelations sociales et plastiques)" with new statutes, the abolition of all national groups, and a severely restricted membership. The archive of Belgian section records ends at this time. CIAM XI, which took place in Otterlo in 1959, featured the work of 43 selected architects including Belgians Willy van der Meeren and Peter Callebout, whose work is not represented in this collection. This final congress ended with a decision to dissolve CIAM definitively.

Scope and Content of Collection

Records of the CIAM Belgian Section comprise the records of Paul Fitschy, Liège-based secretary of the Belgian section of the International Congress for Modern Architecture (Congrès internationaux d’architecture moderne), as well as some CIAM-related documents obtained in separate acquisitions. Included are records generated by the Belgian section itself, the central CIAM secretariat in Switzerland, and associated CIAM national sections, especially those of Switzerland, Belgium, France (principally ASCORAL), Britain (MARS Group), and the Netherlands (8 and Opbouw). The records reflect CIAM’s development as an international organism devoted to discussion and promotion of modern or "rational" solutions to architectural and city planning problems. The day-to-day operations of the Belgian section, an active national group within CIAM, are also recorded. Principal correspondents include Victor Bourgeois, Sigfried Giedion, L. H. de Koninck, Huib Hoste, Gaston Eysselinck, Cornelis Van Eesteren, and J. B. Bakema; some items from Walter Gropius and Le Corbusier are also preserved.
The collection contains ca. 1250 items, including approximately 810 letters (Series I), 36 handwritten notes, predominantly by Fitschy (Series II), 375 documents (Series III), and 29 oversized items (Series IV). Among its items are meeting minutes, memoranda, programs, reports, questionnaires, book proposals, brochures and other ephemera, rosters and exhibition materials, including city planning documents. Notable are the several examples of CIAM grids or "grilles", developed by Le Corbusier in 1948 and promoted extensively by CIAM as a chart-based city planning tool, as well as documents and handouts that accompanied grids presented by national CIAM groups (including the Belgian section) at various congresses.
Topics covered include preparations and results of the various CIAM congresses, predominantly CIAM V through CIAM X, as well as organization and promotion of CIAM-related publications, exhibitions and educational opportunities; of special interest are the documents of the planned CIAM VI in Liège, cancelled in 1939 at the onset of World War II. Reports, circulars and letters contained within the collection chronicle debate on issues of city planning, housing, environmental pollution, architectural education, industrialization of building techniques, legislation and land reform, social requirements, aesthetics and artistic expression, and postwar reconstruction. Also revealed are the contacts maintained with other international associations including the International Union of Architects, the International Federation for Housing and Town Planning, UNESCO and others. Among the CIAM publications discussed in the collection are Logis et loisirs (based on CIAM V, Paris); Giedion’s A decade of new architecture / Dix ans d’architecture contemporaine (based on CIAM VI, Bridgwater and CIAM VII, Bergamo); and Tyrwhitt, Sert and Rogers’s The heart of the city (based on CIAM VIII, Hoddesdon). Also mentioned are Sert’s Can our cities survive? and Le Corbusier’s La charte d’Athènes, both based on CIAM IV, Athens, together with the unpublished La ville fonctionnelle / Die funktionelle Stadt, which was to have been the official CIAM IV publication.
French is the principal language of the materials. German was used by CIAM as a second language before World War II, and English afterwards; several items are in Dutch or Flemish. The practice of using Roman rather than Arabic numerals, evidenced in the majority of documents in this collection, has been followed throughout the finding aid; thus documents entitled "CIAM 9" have been rendered "CIAM IX" in order to facilitate keyword searching.

Series I.  Correspondence, 1934-1958

Physical Description: .84 lin. ft.
Physical Description: 2 boxes, 4 folders

Scope and Content Note

This series presents the correspondence of the Belgian section of CIAM, as principally carried out and preserved by its secretary, Paul Fitschy of the Liège-based group L’Equerre. The series details the foundation of the Belgian section; Belgian section meetings and business (the minutes themselves are filed in Series III. Documents); work, debate and travel for CIAM congress preparation and attendance as well as for CIRPAC and CIAM council meetings; associated architectural or city planning exhibitions and events; government support for CIAM works; and the preparation, editing and marketing of various CIAM publications.
Fitschy’s prolific pen documents the work of and changes to the Belgian section through its several decades of activity, as well as his often heroic efforts to ensure member participation and the completion of CIAM business amidst a general insufficiency of energy and funds. Communications with central CIAM officials (principally Sigfried Giedion of Zürich, CIAM secretary-general, and Cornelis van Eesteren of Amsterdam, CIAM president from 1930 to 1947) are preserved, as is occasional correspondence documenting contacts with a wide range of significant modern European architects and city planners. Among the episodes revealed in the correspondence are the Belgian section's reorganization into three separate divisions (Liège, Antwerp, Brussels); the circumstances surrounding Victor Bourgeois’s sudden resignation from CIAM; efforts to assist in the professional formation of younger architects; and Fitschy’s ultimate resignation as Belgian section secretary. Also covered is Huib Hoste’s hotly contested exclusion from the Belgian section, based on suspicion that he expressed pro-Nazi or collaborationist views during the German occupation of Belgium. Although many letters are copies, several bear the signatures of notable architects, including Le Corbusier and Sigfried Giedion.

Series II.  Handwritten notes, 1938-ca. 1956

Physical Description: 3 folders

Scope and Content Note

This small series contains handwritten drafts, lists, sketches, envelopes, bills and other incidental notes which cannot be identified as rough drafts for correspondence or documents located elsewhere in this collection, or lacking strong relation to such documents. The great majority of these notes are in Paul Fitschy's hand. Notable are the two sets of notes for the preparatory meeting in Brussels for CIAM VI, Liège, 1938 July 10; the Paris CIAM council meeting notes preparatory to CIAM X, 1954 June 30; and the subsequent CIRPAC meeting notes, 1955 July 4. All of these lack official typed minutes in this collection (though the 1938 July 10 meeting is briefly summarized in the CIAM Bulletin d'information bibliographique, Series III. Box 6 f. 3). Handwritten notes which can be strongly linked to other documents have been filed together with them in the appropriate series; notes originally located in other series have been left there.

Series III.  Documents, 1928-1957

Physical Description: ca. 2.1 lin. ft.

Scope and Content Note

This series contains documents generated by CIAM as a whole in the course of congress development and other related projects, and preserved by the Belgian section. These documents show how the CIAM central secretariat, located in Switzerland under the direction of Sigfried Giedion, coordinated with national CIAM chapters to select, debate and prepare topics for CIAM congresses, plan congress locations and arrangements, collaborate on and promote CIAM projects such as publications and educational opportunities, and convey CIAM conclusions to international associations such as UNESCO. The documents recount the debates on city planning concepts of interest to CIAM participants, such as "logis", "habitat" and "core" among many others. The at times fractious communications also detail the several periods of CIAM reorganization and redefinition, including the immediate post-war period, the period after CIAM IX which saw the formation of Team X (Team Ten), and the radical reorganization after CIAM X which led to the ultimate dissolution of CIAM.
Included in the series are final CIAM congress reports; meeting minutes (including CIRPAC and CIAM council meetings as well as Belgian section meetings); official CIAM statutes, communications, memoranda, topic questionnaires, financial statements and press releases; book proposals and book excerpts; and papers, articles and speeches destined for presentation at CIAM events or publication in modern architectural journals. The series also contains ephemera relating to CIAM events and congresses, such as brochures, invitations, tickets, and identity cards. Notes, lists, address labels, envelopes, business cards and handwritten materials have been filed in this series when directly linked to documents found here, or originally found together with them.
Although the representation of the first four CIAM congresses (before the formation of the Belgian section) is somewhat sketchy, the series provides ample documentation of the periods of greatest CIAM activity - during the mid- to late 1930s, and again during the 1950s. The most well-represented CIAM groups are those of Switzerland, Belgium, France (principally ASCORAL), Britain (MARS Group), and the Netherlands (De 8 and Opbouw). Also detailed are the contributions of Algerian (pre-independence), Polish, Hungarian, Italian, Swedish, Portuguese, Yugoslav and German CIAM participants, in addition to those from the United States.
The series has been divided into eleven subseries, each covering a separate CIAM congress. Items are filed chronologically within each of these subseries. Of special interest is the subseries relating to the proposed CIAM VI, Liège, 1939 Sept, in mid-preparation by the Belgian section when it was cancelled at the onset of World War II. All CIAM congresses are represented in this series by at least one document, with the sole exception of CIAM XI, held in 1959 in Otterlo, Netherlands, which is represented in the collection as a whole only by J. B. Bakema’s 1958 May 9 letter (Series I. Correspondence, Box 4, f. 4).
