'A reference work in its field'. L'Architecture d'Aujourd'hui reviews the book 10 STORIES

The latest issue (398) of the French magazine L'Architecture d'Aujourd'hui reviews the book 10 Stories of Collective Housing, by a+t research group:

"This exciting work delivers a careful analysis of community housing, dissecting 10 projects in a clear and informative manner through a historical, political, structural and aesthetic lens. Chosen “in the same way you would chose a friend”, the 10 projects are not so much a top-10 list as the beginnings of  a huge community housing family tree, cranky uncles and all. Of particular interest to younger generations is the question of preserving the spirit of previous large-scale experiments, and learning from their varying fortunes. A reference work in its field, which is beautifully produced". Édith Hallauer

"Véritable anatomie du logement collectif, ce passionnant ouvrage décortique avec clarté et pédagogie dix ensembles de logements d’un point de vue historique, politique, structurel, esthétique... Choisis «comme on choisit un ami», ces dix projets ne constituent pas un top 10 du genre, mais plutôt l’amorce d’un arbre généalogique de la grande famille de l’habitat collectif, oncles illuminés inclus. L’intérêt étant, pour les jeunes générations, de garder à l’esprit les grandes expérimentations passées -  et leurs fortunes plus ou moins diverses. Une bible du genre, et de très belle facture". Édith Hallauer
