(50 items available)
The site development "mehr als wohnen" (more than living) in Zurich North is a flagship project for sustainable housing cooperatives. More Than Housing is a monograph about this dense, socially and energy sustainable residential district. The publication combines elements of a book on architecture with sociological analyses. The built projects are documented using a collection of plans that range from master plans to apartment layouts and selected details. In addition, the participating architects, planners, cooperative members, and experts discuss their experiences and provide insight into the background of the cooperatives and of planning processes. They demonstrate how this exemplary site development can be an integral part of the current urban development discourse and reality. They also discuss how urban planning is able to produce sustainable city development.
