AR472, Lecture 8: Participation

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

In this lecture, which is paired with the Week 10 lecture 'Architecture by committee', the Swiss cooperatives take a back seat. The concept of participation in architecture is theoretically framed, then addressed through the case studies of Einfried Huth in Austria, Alvaro Siza and SAAL Nord in Porto and The Hague, and Walter Segal's self-build housing in London.
