Roland Barthes / The city is a poem, however, it is not a classical poem

Source: l'Architecture d'Aujourd'hui"
#377, april-may, 2010

Published in the "l'Architecture d'Aujourd'hui" issue of December 1970-January 1971, this seminal text on an urban semiology has never appeared elsewhere and is not part of the texts selected for Barthes' complete works. In it, Roland Barthes defines the conditions for the possibility of a semiology of the city and encourages his readers to "multiply their readings of the city" for which, at that time, he states "only writers have given us a few examples".

Publié dans le numéro de décembre 1970-janvier 1971 de "l'Architecture d'Aujourd'hui", ce texte fondateur pour la sémiologie urbaine n'a jamais été publié ailleurs et ne fait pas partie de ceux retenus dans les oeuvres complètes. Roland Barthes y définit les conditions d'une sémiologie de la ville et invite ses lecteurs à "multiplier les lectures de la ville" dont à l'époque, sels selon lui "les écrivains nous ont donné quelques exemples".
