Rounding off the “Reclaim” series, which arose from an environmental
sense of reclaiming land, objects, infrastructures and materials, this
issue focuses on the refurbishment of dwellings, analysing actions
carried out on both private residences and collective housing. Through
works by Lacaton & Vassal, for instance, the collective housing
passed down from the last century is reconsidered, demonstrating that
selective redemption of architectural heritage is becoming an
increasingly viable option for today’s cities.
