This exhibition foregrounds a critical priority for the Pritzker Prize-winning French architects: Urbanism begins inside each apartment, with quality housing for everyone.
This exhibition presents three years of teaching and research framed by inaugural Rothwell co-chairs Anne Lacaton & Jean-Philippe Vassal at the University of Sydney School of Architecture, Design, and Planning.
Connecting Lacaton & Vassal’s architectural projects, documentary films, research, and studio investigations focused on the Sirius Building and the Waterloo Housing Estate, Lacaton & Vassal: Living in the City illuminates a method based on close attention, transformation rather than demolition, and provision of the highest quality of living space. It foregrounds a critical priority for the Pritzker Prize-winning French architects: Urbanism begins inside each apartment, with quality housing for everyone.
