" Paris Habitat. Hundred city years, hundred years of life " is a unique work including a century of new archives (original plans, photo reports, followed by construction site, contemporary looks) to tell the manufacturing of Paris by the accommodation.
Towers, bars, buildings in redans or City Halls, closed islands, common ownership courts, weaknesses terraces, balconies simple or double orientation, accommodation of angle passageways, distributions by the inside, the central pits: the heritage of Paris Habitat presents all the typologies of intimacy and urban places of life. Five filters, corresponding to so many possible visions of the city, dense, diverse, intense, fertile, agile, are applied to the analysis of the projects to allow all to arrest their quality with regard to the contemporary stakes. This selection starts resonating with the words of six teams of European architects invited to share this reflection.
When the accommodation is a priority, to reread hundred city years and hundred years of life through the spectre of the heritage of Paris Habitat-OPH offer a great potential for the construction of our buildings of tomorrow.
