One of the first acts of urban globalization, the public housing that lined the urban landscape after the Second World War often reflected the process of standardization of industrialized societies.
Through colloquiums, conferences and debates, the Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine will look at the different ways social housing residents have dealt with the imposition of these « formatted and hegemonic » models and how they have transformed them.
The colloquium “l’Entre-deux barres” (“Between Two Slabs”) examines “the space-time paradigm of popular resistance to this Modern project, of social and spatial inventions that contradict the project’s principles, in order to correct its errors and miscalculations.”
April 27th, 28th and 29th, 2017
Auditorium of la Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine
