Typ Berlin : Le Corbusier's Building in Charlottenburg

Paperback
Residents bring life into a house and shape its character. Photographer and social anthropologist Barbel Hogner was well aware of this phenomenon when she moved into the Le Corbusier building in Berlin as 'artist-in-residence' in 2007. In 1958, the architect Le Corbusier confronted Berliners in the divided city with his concept of communal living. The aesthetic impact of his Unite d'habitation, Typ Berlin , is apparent to this day. Barbel Hogner has captured the co-relation in between Le Corbusier's vanguard architecture and its residents with impressive and surprising images.
