Arquitectura Viva 202; Housing Refurbished

Publisher Avisa

ISBN 02141256

Idea Code 18147

Periheries are neither as anonymous nor as dysfunctional as presumed. Nor are they really "new": sometimes they need refurbishing as much as city centers do. Nevertheless, the strategies used in the outskirts differ from those that are used in city centers, less hesitant to take aggressive action in improving the type or the energy performance of buildings. Arquitectura Viva looks at these strategies in four European projects: the transformation of 530 dwellings in Bordeaux by Lacaton & Vassal, Druot, and Hutin; the refurbishment of 709 in Lormont, France, by LAN architecture; the 'Kleiburg de Flat' project in Amsterdam by NL Architects and XVW architectuur; and the renovation of Block XII in Camp Redó (Palma de Mallorca) by NIU arquitectura.
