Lacaton & Vassal, Frédéric Druot. Transformation of a residential block. La Chesnaie. France

This block is part of a high-rise complex designed in the 1960s which looks run-down and is unliked by residents. This type of situation normally leads the authorities to destroy the existing structure and rebuild it with no concern for those living there. The Lacaton & Vassal team believe demolition to be a mistake and that another way is possible, that existing elements have their own intrinsic values and that a positive long-term transformation, with the aim to redesign the area in a responsible way, can be planned.
