Item description for Elemental: A Do Tank for Urban Projects in Contexts of Scarce Resources by Alejandro Aravena...
Elemental is an initiative creating innovative solutions for subsidized housing. The program s urban projects aim to improve social housing for poverty stricken families. Elemental organized an international architecture competition which resulted in 7 constructed projects throughout Chile as hybrids between house and building, pushing the limits of expansion and density. Built in central areas, these houses are half-constructed, offering the inhabitants the infrastructure to extend the house to personal needs. This book is a fascinating study of the successes and failures of the 'Element Houses.'
