Collective Housing

ISBN: 9789881263506

Publisher: Gingko Press

As more and more people move into urban environments, there becomes a greater need for space-conscious housing in our cities. Collective Housing is a compilation of the best architectural designs for shared and social housing in a city or urban environment, where aesthetics are integral, and utilization of space imperative. The projects featured come from cities around the world, both those known for innovation in urban architecture, such as Tokyo, London and Barcelona, and those aspiring to world-class status. The book provides an illuminating look at the future of our urban landscapes. Architectural plans and drawings are featured alongside renderings and photographs of the completed housing projects. The text accompanying the images provides further insight into the design, execution and consideration of the space. The designers and architects featured were often constrained by existing structures, small or awkward plots of land and strict city codes. But as the abundance of images in Collective Housing show, these restrictions only heightened their creative sensibilities.
