A huge number of residential buildings in Europe were built between 1945 and 1975, not only renewing but also significantly expanding housing stock in this short period. In eliminating the post-war housing shortage, the state and institutions in the public sector had a unique opportunity to realise political ideals. How could a fundamental modernisation of living and its architectural implementation succeed against this background? Comparing individual projects, this book traces the topics negotiated by these buildings and how local issues influenced the architecture. The study is based on 70 examples from seven cities: Athens, Brussels, Cologne, Lyon, Oslo, Porto, and Zagreb.
