This book contains a selection of 83 collective housing works carried out in Spain between 1929 and 1992. It offers a detailed version of the residence projected in Spain between the Barcelona International Exhibition of 1929 and the Universal Exhibition of Seville in 1992. Two particularly significant dates, two points of inflection in architectural thought: the enthronement and the epilogue of modernity. It contains plans of all buildings redrawn and with different scales depending on whether it is the urban implementation, the definition of the block or the description of the types, with photos of the time and cards with the main data of each project and its Author. The research process reconstructs the evolution of the project to extract its main values as a tool for the city and contemporary housing. An essential book to know the evolution of housing in our country, assessing its character as a modern heritage or to create projective criteria applicable to the contemporary housing model.
Bilingual edition: Spanish & English.
