AR–472 Lecture 6: Urban Figures, 1990–2020

6, AR-472 Swiss cooperative housing: a critical overview

In this lecture we discuss the new cooperatives and their alternative agendas based on the youth movements described in the previous week. The lecture will focus on new buildings and how the ideological bases impact upon design and create typological innovation. This lecture marks the halfway point of the series, after which we switch from a chronological survey to thematic lectures that look transversally at the wider cooperative culture.
