Post-War Middle-Class Housing. Peter Lang
New York,2015

Post-war middle-class housing played a key role in constructing and transforming the cities of Europe and America, deeply impacting today’s urban landscape. And yet, this stock has been underrepresented in a literature mostly focused on public housing and the work of a few master architects. This book is the first attempt to explore such housing from an international perspective. It provides a comparative insight into the processes of construction, occupation and transformation of residential architecture built for the middle-classes in 12 different countries between the 1950s and 1970s. It investigates the role of models, actors and policies that shaped the middle-class city, tracing geographies, chronologies and forms of development that often cross national frontiers. This study is particularly relevant today within the context of «fragilization» which affects the middle-classes, hallenging, as it does, the urban role played by this residential heritage in the light of technological obsolescence, trends in patterns of homeownership, as well as social and generational changes.

Madrid luxury housing from 1900

La vivienda de lujo en Madrid de 1900comprar

The book “Madrid luxury housing from 1900” relates the history of high-class, bourgeois, luxury…housing of Madrid through the work of many architects, some well-known, others today anonymous. Saldaña, Suazo, Gutiérrez Soto, García Mercadal, Aníbal Alvarez, Aguinaga, Sáenz de Oíza, Cano Lasso, Ruiz de la Prada, Aroca y Burkhalter, Higueras y Miró, Carvajal, Lamela, García Benito, Corrales y Molezún, Bueso-Inchausti & Rein, Vicens y Ramos o Ábalos & Sentkiewicz…are some of the names. Authors of buildings that today have become Madrid’s heritage and which merits have seldom be highlighted. The bet of some developer companies, such as TIUNA, FiNCOSA or JOTSA, or the business exploits of Zuazo, Lamela or Ruiz de la Prada were equally remarkable. This book has produced its own documentation: more than 100 redrawn plans, visits to the buildings, pictures, advertisements from different periods, literary and press references, interviews with architects, developers, neighbours, janitors…This great effort is the result of more than 5 years of research that ended in a PhD. A book that is a built memoir of Madrid. Presentation
