MUSÉE URBAIN TONY GARNIER - CITÉ TONY GARNIER

"The origin of the quartier des Etats-Unis ("United States district") dates back to 1917. Edouard Herriot, the Mayor of Lyon, announced the creation of lodgings for workers at the factories located between La Guillotière and Vénissieux: this was the first social housing, or Habitations à Bon Marché. Tony Garnier, an architect who had won the Grand Prix de Rome, was chosen to coordinate this monumental undertaking. Work on the site began in 1920 and the first residents arrived in July 1933. Restored between 1985 and 1997, the popular Etats-Unis district has witnessed an interesting cultural development: in 1988 the artists of Citécréation® began to design and create huge wall paintings. This was the birth of the Tony Garnier Urban Museum. The Urban Museum now offers a tour of the Cité de Tony Garnier, a set of 25 wall paintings; there is also a model apartment that recreates the atmosphere of the 1930s, a reception and temporary exhibition area and a relatively recently added air-raid shelter from the Second World War. Part of Lyon's "Utopies Réalisées" (utopias achieved). 19 huge wall paintings, inspired by the works of Tony Garnier: plans for his Socialist Industrial City designed at the turn of the century, the Edouard Herriot hospital, the slaughterhouses (that adjoined the Halle Tony Garnier covered market) inauguration with Edouard Herriot, Tony Garnier, the Lumière brothers, Jules Courmont and Laurent Bonnevay, Gerland football stadium, and one with watercolours of Tony Garnier (2001). 6 wall paintings sponsored by UNESCO, designed by artists from around the world, representing their vision of the ideal city: the Cote d'Ivoire, Egypt, the United States, India, Mexico and Russia."

Happy Wall Wednesday everyone!!!

The world's oldest social housing complex, formally founded in 1521 by Jakob Fugger "the Rich", though construction actually started earlier. The first buildings were erected between 1516 and 1523.

 

This is the Herrengasse, sort of the main street in this complex.

 

And if you wonder about that "interesting" place name that flickr assigned, please see here in the Help Forum.

The Boundary Estate is a housing development, formally opened in 1900, in the East End of London, England. It is situated in the north western corner of Bethnal Green in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and on the boundary with Shoreditch, in the London Borough of Hackney. The estate, constructed from 1890, was one of the earliest social housing schemes built by a local government authority. It replaced the Friars Mount rookery[1] in the Old Nichol. It was built on top of the demolished rookery, the works were begun by the Metropolitan Board of Works in 1893 and completed by the recently formed London County Council. It is, arguably, the world's first council housing. The soil from the foundations was used to construct a mound in the middle of Arnold Circus at the centre of the development, this was surmounted by an extant bandstand. The estate consists of multi-story brick tenements radiating from the central circus, each of which bears the name of a location along the River Thames. Source: Wikipedia

"Saenveste" is a social housing complex, built in 1919 in the style of rationalism architecture. Restoration took place in 2012.

 

De buitenring van het complex Zaanhof, of tegenwoordig ook Saenveste geheten, is een blok met woningen in de Spaarndammerbuurt, opgeleverd in 1919. Het is ontworpen door de architecten Tjeerd Kuipers en Arnold Ingwersen, in rationalistische trant, voor de protestantse woningbouwvereniging Patrimonium.

De laatste renovatie was in 2012.

Museum "Het Schip"

 

"Het Schip" is a social housing complex built in 1921 and designed by architect Michel de Klerk. The world-renowned expressionist building is popularly known as The Ship because of the particular shape in which it has been constructed. It has since become an icon of the Amsterdam School architecture movement.

De Klerk did not design only the facades of The Ship and the houses, but also the interior of the post office, including the stained glass windows.

The care with which the post office was restored in 2018 enables us to admire de Klerk's only fully preserved interior design in all it's glory (hetschip.nl).

 

Happy Window Wednesday :-)

Security Mesh. I escaped this type of dwelling as a child.

We had a sub terraenean Rachman 2 room basement flat with an outside toilet and a tin bath. This external corridor was the price to pay for the communal playground the flat came with.

Fred Wigg & John Walsh Towers.

 

Built in the 1960's, each tower has 117 flats, there are very shifty council plans for gentrification. There was more controversy in 2012 when Rapier missile batteries were installed on the roofs during the London Olympics.

2014 - Rome

 

Palazzo Lamperini (Quartiere San Lorenzo):

  

Nei palazzi del quartiere è possibile notare una diffusa presenza di ballatoi, ovvero quelle balconate strette che connettono vari appartamenti di un palazzo, tipiche dell'edilizia sociale della rivoluzione industriale.

 

Al numero 180 di via Tiburtina c'è Palazzo Lamperini. 'Anno 1888' come riporta lo stemma sul portone. Era un palazzo destinato agli operai delle fabbriche di birra e ghiaccio che rifornivano Roma novella capitale. Quei ballatoi hanno ospitato film e fiction sin dagli anni '50, tra cui anche “I soliti ignoti” di Mario Monicelli. Qui anche il semplice gesto di stendere i panni assume una valenza sociale. I fili per stendere i panni non collegano solo le ringhiere dei portici dei vari piani, sono il segno della presenza di una fitta rete sociale che collega soprattutto le persone che vivono nel condominio, chiamate a negoziare i tempi dell'utilizzo del filo.

  

Lamperini Palace (District San Lorenzo):

  

In the buildings of the neighborhood you may notice a widespread presence of balconies, or those narrow balconies that connect different apartments in a building, typical of social housing of the industrial revolution.

 

At number 180 of Via Tiburtina's Palace Lamperini. '1888' as the emblem on the back door. It was a palace for the workers of the factories of beer and ice which supplied Rome tidings capital. These galleries have hosted film and fiction since the '50s, including ' Unknown thieves ' by Mario Monicelli. Here even the simple act of drying clothes is a fundamental social. The wires for drying clothes not only connect the railings of the arcades of the various plans, are a sign of the presence of a dense social network that connects especially people living in the building, calls to negotiate the timing of the use of the wire.

Die Fuggerei in Augsburg ist die älteste bestehende Sozialsiedlung der Welt. Die Reihenhaussiedlung stiftete Jakob Fugger „der Reiche“ im Jahr 1521. Heute wohnen in den 140 Wohnungen der 67 Häuser 150 bedürftige katholische Augsburger Bürger für eine Jahres(kalt)miete von 0,88 Euro. Sie sprechen dafür täglich einmal ein Vaterunser, ein Glaubensbekenntnis und ein Ave Maria für den Stifter und die Stifterfamilie Fugger. Bis heute wird die Sozialsiedlung aus dem Stiftungsvermögen Jakob Fuggers unterhalten. Das Fürstlich und Gräflich Fuggersche Familienseniorat fungiert als Aufsichtsgremium der Fürstlich und Gräflich Fuggerschen Stiftungs-Administration, die die Fuggerei und acht Fuggersche Stiftungen betreut.

 

The Fuggerei is the world's oldest social housing complex still in use. It is a walled enclave within the city of Augsburg, Bavaria. It takes its name from the Fugger family and was founded in 1516 by Jakob Fugger the Younger (known as "Jakob Fugger the Rich") as a place where the needy citizens of Augsburg could be housed. By 1523, 52 houses had been built, and in the coming years the area expanded with various streets, small squares and a church. The gates were locked at night, so the Fuggerei was, in its own right, very similar to a small independent medieval town. It is still inhabited today, affording it the status of being the oldest social housing project in the world.
