Item description for Collective Housing: A Manual by Jose Maria de Lapuerta...

This overview of some major topics that affect the dialogue and pedagogy of housing originates from the 2006 course on Collective Housing at the Escuela Tecnica de Arquitectura de Madrid (ETSAM). Based on a series of workshops lead by some of the most pivotal figures who affect and determine the character of European housing, Collective Housing: A Manual explores the origins, concepts, and design of collective housing from the professional and academic standpoint; it is a guide of the changes, pressures, and concerns that influence the realization of such a project. The particular works emerging from the collaboration between professor and student, practice and study, illuminate new avenues of thought and construction, making this compendium an invaluable contribution to the continued development of housing.

Reviews - What do customers think about Collective Housing: A Manual?

disappointed  Mar 3, 2008
As a huge fan of Cecil Balmond, I eagerly anticipated his follow up to Informal. Once it was available, I ordered my copy. Upon arrival, however, I was disappointed to see that it was nothing more than a picture book - flocks of birds, waves crashing, sand dunes, etc with bumper sticker text sprinkled through - definitely not the in depth descriptions and insights of one of the foremost designers / thinkers of our time, as presented in Informal and his previous book "Number 9: The Search for the Sigma Code". If you enjoy "Above the Earth" books (as I do), or need something for your coffee table, you'll love this - I was expecting more (especially for $30).
