Scale and identity in the housing projects of Coderch
|Title:||Scale and identity in the housing projects of Coderch||Authors:||Pike, Michael||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5611||Date:||2012||Abstract:||The work of the Catalan architect, Jose Antonio Coderch (1913-1984) displays an intense preoccupation with questions of scale. The paper investigates the Banco Urquijo project in Barcelona (1972) and situates it in the context of Team 10 and the critical discussions surrounding housing in the 1960s. Coderch explores an intermediate scale in this project, a scale that is capable of relating to the historic city and that ensures that the identity of the individual homes can be maintained within a collective scheme. The ideas of Team 10 find their most eloquent expression in this work.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Routledge||Copyright (published version):||2012 selection and editorial material, Gerald Adler, Timothy Brittain-Catlin and Gordana Fontana-Giusti: individual chapters, the contributors||Keywords:||Jose Antonio Coderch;Banco Urquijo;Scale||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Gerald Adler, Timothy Brittain-Catlin, Gordana Fontana-Giusti (eds.).
