CIAM 8, Hoddesdon 1951
Bastle, Switzerland - ‘ a new center for an old city’, O.Senn et al
The plan was initiated in the CIAM 8 congress by the group O.Senn et al, for a town population of 200,000.  The problem of the old core, with all functions of buildings and open spaces being confused within each other, resulting in the hectic atmosphere of a dis-functional city core, is proposed to be replaced by a spacious new core which clears away obsolete buildings, covering part of the railway yards, and forming thoughtful public open urban spaces with the interventions of shopping areas, hotels, offices, and entertainment buildings.
