An Urban Studies Bookshelf

Clement Greenberg once defined Modernism as a phenomenon that emerged “in the middle of the last century--and rather locally, in France, with Baudelaire in literature and Manet in painting.” By this account, Modernism begins with the earliest explorations and depictions of how individual citydwellers inhabit the streets, and of phenomena specific to cities, such as café society, bohemianism, prostitution and social spectacle. These were the abiding themes of both Baudelaire and Manet, as chroniclers of post-Haussmann Paris; and these themes, reinvented successively by Walter Benjamin, the Surrealists, the Situationists, the events of May 68 and theorists from Michel de Certeau to Rebecca Solnit, have transformed our experience of cities and architecture, and have heightened our conceptualization of private and public space. More recently, architecture and urban studies have been further animated by ecological crisis and the need for renewable resources. The below titles reflected current efforts to overhaul architectural paradigms and reinvent everyday civic experience.

(w)EGO: Tailor-Made Housing

Text by Winy Maas, Adrien Ravon, Javier Arpa, Felix Madrazo.

With (W)EGO: Tailor-Made Housing, the Why Factory investigates participatory processes in housing design—processes that establish the grounds for negotiation between the desires of residents, designers and architects. To achieve this, Wegocity has conceptualized a kind of gaming” process that adapts the requirements of each resident and transforms them into spatial needs. As a result of this game,” unforeseen housing typologies emerge through a truly human-driven residential building.

(W)EGO: Tailor-Made Housing is part of the Why Factory’s Future Cities series, following Visionary Cities, Green Dream, Vertical Village, Hong Kong Fantasies, City Shocks, We Want World Wonders and Absolute Leisure.
