In the early 20th Century, the founder of the Bata Shoe Company combined American methods of factory management with the European ethic of communalism to realize a vision of more efficient working and living conditions. Victor Sanz (MAUD '11) begins his odyssey to visit the global network of Bata towns with a GSD Druker Traveling Fellowship, and shares notes of his travels with the Canadian journal On Site Review 27: rural urbanism and with us. Read "In the image and likeness. Batawa: notes on an exported blueprint in southern Ontario."
The Batawa essay is one of two by Victor Sanz in the current On Site issue. The other, "Resex: the entropic landscape of the Amazon basin," is the continuation of research done during the GSD seminar "Resource Extraction Urbanism."
