Brutalismus
NETWORK LIVING – Architecture for All Generations

16 February – 19 May 2013
Guided Tours on Sat + Sun, 16:00

The exhibition is conceived as a call for standardization in the field of housing for the elderly. The 35 residential buildings presented show that, ideally, housing for the elderly should enable residents to continue their lifestyle habits. At the same time, the social opportunities are highlighted. Be it people living alone in a detached house, living together with others in a communal housing project or living in an apartment in a multistory block in a district with self-organized neighborhood assistance, the topic of housing for the elderly is architecturally diverse and multifaceted. Examples from Europe and beyond demonstrate innovative approaches, including building conversion to suit the elderly in Switzerland and assisted living in Luxembourg. Further projects include renovations in Germany and a revitalized village in Italy. The contemporary residential projects are complemented by historical buildings by Le Corbusier, Philip Johnson, Robert Venturi, Richard Neutra and Richard Rogers.
