3. Types of Housing
Architectural education is supposed to prepare the future architects for this situation but is often focused too much on an artistic self-image. This perspective served as the basis for four semesters of teaching residential housing during the Guest Professorship of Felix Claus at the ETH Zurich. Architecture was conveyed considering the factors that presently shape its status as a producing discipline.
The book documents the teaching activity, featuring exercises and student works. A comprehensive collection of typological examples, which was used as a constant point of reference for the students, forms the book’s backbone. It is rounded off by nine texts dealing with housing. Among the authors are Vittorio Magnano, Lampugnani, Hans Kollhoff, Kees Christiaanse and Adrian Meyer.
