Le Corbusier: Unite d'habitation "Typ Berlin"
The Unite d’Habitation in Berlin by Corbusier (built 1957-58) stands as an exceptional monument within the post-war architecture of the city. The gigantic building houses 530 apartments and follows the basic idea of a ‘vertical village’ as imagined by the architect. The book explores the building through multiple perspectives, gathering authors from the fields of architecture, urbanism, art history and cultural studies.
For the first time, research into the history and construction of building is given at length, accompanied by various design and urbanist contexts and discourses.
