Inhabiting, pleasure and luxury for everyone: Jean-Philippe Vassal
The Housing System
2015, Oct 22–28
Jean-Philippe Vassal (Lacaton & Vassal, Paris) aims for renovating modernist housing projects rather than rebuilding from scratch. Thus the office opened up a new debate on the potential of the much-criticized housing estates.
The lecture is part of the international Wohnungsfrage Academy under the direction of Reinhold Martin (Buell Center, Columbia University). From October 22 to 28, the Academy brought together a group of international experts from across the world in order to re-conceptualize a global “housing system".
