This is Hybrid (21)
The book This is Hybrid has been reviewed on the famous architecture blogs ArchDaily and Plataforma Arquitectura.
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.
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.
The lineal city rather than the intense city is the aim of this ambitious project for social housing, inheritor of the Le Corbusier scheme.
The Monte Amiata complex was another attempt at a laboratory reproduction of urban complexity, again outside the city.
The original project was made up of two towers, one for housing and the other for offices, which became only one with residential use on the upper floors.
