»Together! The New Architecture of the Collective«
presents an overview of contemporary collective housing projects from contexts
as different as Europe, Asia, and the United States. The exhibition catalogue
traces the history of this recent collective turn in housing back to the
utopian residential developments
of the nineteenth and early twentieth
centuries, and the first radical housing cooperative projects of the 1920s. It
tells the story of the various protest movements against housing shortages and
real estate speculation in many urban centres since the 1960s. A series of
visual essays by photographer
Daniel Burchard gives the reader an
introduction to everyday domestic life of eight contemporary housing projects
in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and Japan.
Critical essays by Andreas Hofer, Ethel
Baraona Pohl, Anna Puigjaner, Robert Temel, Yuma Shinohara, and the editors of
this book analyze the search for the collective as the defining force in the
development of housing from the beginnings of modernism until today.
