Description

From the pre-war Viennese Werkbund Estate (designed by the likes of Gerrit Rietveld and Adolf Loos), the post-war Swiss Siedlung Halen (by Atelier 5) to more recent builds such as the Medina Complex in Eindhoven (Neave Brown), Modernist Estates: Europe showcases 15 housing schemes through archival and contemporary photography, alongside a series of interviews with current residents. This beautifully designed book takes an inside look at how these estates are inhabited today and examines the differences and similarities between estates across Europe.
