New book by a+t research group. Now on sale
June 09, 2016
The illustration of the elephant is a reference to the issue of the relationship between what can be perceived at first sight and what normally goes unseen. An internal organization is known to exist yet we are not always aware of its material nature.
FORM&DATA includes an anatomical review of 20 collective housing projects, which gives an insight into the real relationship between form and internal organs and to finds the true location of the soul of each building.
a+t research group continues along the route first taken with WHY DENSITY?, a set of tools in order to build the dense city. FORM&DATA applies the concepts included in it to analyze graphically collective housing projects, built between 2013 and 2016.
Elements extracted from the projects:
- Urban form
- Data (land occupation, location)
- Hard performances (insertion in the grid, shared space, public space, circulation, uses…)
- Plans, elevations and sections
Moreover, FORM&DATA includes a chapter of 23 pages that compares and relates the projects.
The book forms part of the Density series, which became a reference for publications about collective housing worldwide.
