Project published in a+t 33-34. HYBRIDS III. Residential Mixed-Use Buildings.
A distance in time of fourteen years separates the first design and the latest of the De Rotterdam building. The photos show the works on the building in August 2012...
The function of living is the most difficult to insert into hybrid programmes. Throughout this double issue which brings to a close the Hybrids series, a+t graphically analyses 20 recent projects and supports the inclusion of housing in mixed developments.
The volume also includes a historical analysis of 12 classic examples where the differences between hybrid buildings and social condensers are clearly outlined.
The aim of this development was to create a focus of attention in this area of the city, located in a residential area 1.5 km from the centre.
The NYBILLBOARD by prechteck
One of the first persons to propose high-rise social housing was Ernö Goldfinger, with a scheme for housing and circulation similar to that of L’Unité.
After observing the decline for twenty years, the town planning regulations of central Manhattan went back to promoting mixed-use buildings. The Galleria was the first to be built under the new regulations.
Located in Bloomsbury, this complex was conceived as a three-level plaza running the length of the block and linking directly with the surrounding road.
