Collective Housing | 2009 | Editorial Pencil

By [Editor] Antonio Gimenez & Conchi Monzonis

This volume presents 17 detailed case studies of Iberian housing developments designed by such names as lvaro Siza, Souto de Moura, Javier Terrados y Fernando Surez and Ercilla y Campo. What sets these studies apart is the unparalleled level of detail offered, especially in the plans - elevations from every direction, multiple floor plans, masses of sectional diagrams with relevant technical data - which are neatly complemented by unfussy descriptive text and plenty of photographs. A book that really sets a standard.
