Her seminal work, The Rule and the Model, a theoretical analysis of urbanism that came out in France in 1980, was only translated and published by MIT Press in 1997.

Originally completed in 1992, it was awarded a Grand Prix National du Patrimoine by the French government in 1995.

Choay is a woman with a mission.

This no doubt explains her appeal to architects and urbanists, in addition to the historians and cultural theorists who are her peers.

This book traces an important strand in the intellectual history of the West from the Renaissance to the present. During this period, consciousness of the remains of the past - particularly the monuments of classical antiquity and, in the nineteenth century, impressive Romanesque and Gothic structures - grew exponentially. Architects such as Ruskin, Viollet-le-Duc, Riegl, and Boito developed and implemented theories as to how these types of monuments could be maintained for posterity. Analyzing the phenomenon of the historic monument from the fifteenth through the twentieth centuries, Françoise Choay exposes its ambivalent character, as a symbol of a capitalist economy, as a symptom of deep social malaise, and even as a touchstone for the rediscovery of humanistic values whose relevance for contemporary society can no longer be taken for granted. Originally published in the French, this book was awarded the Grand Prix National du Patrimoine by the French government in 1995.
