Fragile Possibilities in the Big Plans
Balconies, extensive and robust asphalt surfaces, ground floor flat windows and toilets, sand, back- and front gardens, occupied basement air-raid shelters, doors …
These are some of the material and spatial dimensions that residents’ appreciate and care for in three Scandinavian post-war modernist housing estates.
Revolving around such details this lecture explores fragile architectural strategies and theories that may contribute to the redevelopment of the Big Plans by motivating engagement with place and change over time.
