Simon Sadler searches for the Situationist City among the detritus of tracts, manifestos, and works of art that the SI left behind. The book is divided into three parts. The first, "The Naked City," outlines the Situationist critique of the urban environment as it then existed. The second, "Formulary for a New Urbanism," examines Situationist principles for the city and for city living. The third, "A New Babylon," describes actual designs proposed for a Situationist City.

Insert with the magazine:
After questioning the reports of art and politics, La Part de l'CEil addresses the question of architecture. Continuing the attempt to explore and invent the aesthetic discourse. In our endeavor, our constant desire to put the discourse to the test, we have confronted our hypotheses with the very act of building and living, with architecture in its own right and the difference with other arts.
