Mario Fiorentino. Corviale: Hybrid or Social Condenser?

The linear city rather than the intense city was the object of this ambitious project
for social housing, heir to Le Corbusier planning. The desire to solve urban growth
with one single self-sufficient action led to a paralysing programme. The complex
was never finished and many of the facilities were never built. Its isolation from the
real city, the contrast with the scale of the surrounding fabric and the situation of
illegality which meant the work was abandoned before completion all led to the
eventual failure of the planned city. With time it was taken over and customized by
squatters who compartmentalised the common spaces and created a market trading
in illegal dwellings. Parallel to this other non-profit initiatives have been trying
to redeem the experiment by creating new links between dwellers.

Project published in the article Hybrid versus Social Condenser by Aurora Fernández Per included in This is Hybrid.
