To meet the high demand for housing in the 1960s and 70s, large residential complexes were built around the world. Five decades later, these structures are seen as obsolete from an ideological perspective, failed from an urbanistic view, and ready to be taken down.
The exhibition Never Demolish! will show the spectacular transformation of 530 apartments in three high-rises in Bordeaux. The drafts were developed by French architectural firms Lacaton & Vassal Architects, Frédéric Druot Architecture and Christophe Hutin Architecture.
The exhibition will be curated by Ilka und Andreas Ruby.
