Project published in 10 Stories of Collective Housing
The Cité de Muette is the first case of the use of industrialization in high-rise collective housing. It was implemented using a mixed steel framework system reinforced with pre-fabricated light-weight concrete panels, installed horizontally and vertically.
Its relevance lies in the architects’ ambition to improve house-building by incorporating the advantages of new materials: the lightness of steel, and by assembling with industrial components. However, fire regulations curtailed the development of this mixed system which seemed to be the most suitable system for systematizing dry construction.
