C3: No. 377 - Time: Memory in Space, Density in Context - Design Strategies for Site-Specific Housing
Publisher: C3 ISBN: 20925190 Format: Softcover, 200pp, 230x300mm
In this instalment, an overview is presented of the increasingly frequent phenomenon wherein architecture must address the reuse, restoration, and adaptation of historic buildings that have come to be considered heritage. Thus, architects must contemplate time as well as space when transforming them into functioning modern residences.
Featured works include the Alpine Barn Apartment by OFIS, a house in Hatogaya by Schemata Architects, and the Florins Residence by Baumhauer. This issue also examines design strategies for site-specific housing, with diverse solutions by Ken Architekten, Antonini Darmon, Joliark, Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects, and others.
