Exposition Social Housing — New York

New York Center for Architecture just launched the exhibition "Social housing - New European projects".

Across Europe, a new generation of architecture practices are transforming affordable housing. Responding to continued need, changing clients, and new funding methods, architects are once again addressing how homes can be delivered at scale while piloting new methods to achieve high standards of design. Based on a 2017 publication of the same name, Social Housing captures some of the best and most innovative examples of not-for-profit housing at a critical juncture for the sector. Drawing together 25 European case studies by 20 practices, it looks at a range of building and dwelling typologies, emerging design approaches, and refurbishment strategies. Together, they offer a challenge to housing professionals and citizens in the US to rethink how we build and highlights the vital role of accessible, low-cost housing in the life and function of our cities.

Exhibition curated by Karakusevic Carson Architects featuring projects and contributions by Adam Khan Architects (UK), Assemble (UK), Avenier & Cornejo Architectes (France), Chartier Dalix (France), Hans van der Heijden (The Netherlands), Einszueins (Austria), Hawkins\Brown (UK), Haworth Tompkins Architects (UK), Karakusevic Carson Architects (UK), Lacaton & Vassal (France), LAN architecture (France), Mae (UK), Mecanoo (The Netherlands), Mikhail Riches Architects (UK), Mole (UK), muf architecture/art (UK), Niall McLaughlin Architects (UK), s333 architecture + Urbanism (UK), Sergison Bates architects (UK and CH), TVK (France), Witherford Watson Mann (UK) and zanderroth architeckten (Germany).

TVK remembers Amine Ibnolmobarak

In the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris on 13 November last year, we were greatly saddened to learn of the death of Amine Ibnolmobarak, whom we knew as an intern architect here at TVK in 2011. He worked with us for several months on an urban project in Blanc-Mesnil, just outside Paris. We remember him for his energy, his enormous creativity and his sheer likeability. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends. 


Disparition Pascal Cribier

We were deeply affected on learning of the death of Pascal Cribier. We worked for several years with Pascal who, together with Patrick Ecoutin and Daphné Charles, was part of our treasured landscape team for the Garonne Eiffel urban project in Bordeaux. His delight in sharing his unique genius for the art of the garden meant he quickly became a friend. He invited us to his home in Varengeville-sur-Mer, showed us some truly remarkable gardens and gave us fresh insights into his garden at the Tuileries. In his last work, in the Parc aux Angéliques in Bordeaux, his energy and tenacity brought us together in the creation of a unique garden by the Garonne. With his special blend of talent and generosity he left a profound impression on us all. This is our tribute to someone we are going to miss very, very much.
