- DescriptionThis book analyses the role of middle-class housing in the shaping of post-war European and American cities. Observing the processes of design, construction and transformation in 12 different countries, it provides a striking, multi-faceted overview of this residential heritage and challenges its role in the contemporary city.
- Author BiographyGaia Caramellino is Senior Research Fellow in Architectural History at the Politecnico di Torino and teaches History and Theory of Architecture at the Politecnico di Milano. She was national coordinator of the research project Architecture for the Middle-Classes in Italy, 1950s-1970s , funded by the Italian government, and was visiting scholar at the CCA in 2011. Her research focuses on the history of 20th-century housing models, cultures, policies and practices and on their circulation between Europe and the U.S. Federico Zanfi is Assistant Professor in Urbanism at the Politecnico di Milano. His design and research activity gravitates around the post-growth transformation of the 20th-century built heritage, with a focus on Italian urban systems: he has developed reform strategies for unauthorised southern settlements, for diffuse urbanization in central-northern regions, and for middle-class condominiums in the main metropolitan areas.
