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!!!

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.

Amsterdam - Spaarndammerplantsoen.

 

"Spaarndam 2" is a social housing complex built in the Amsterdam School style of architecture and designed in 1918 by architect Michel de Klerk. Restoration was completed this spring.

 

Spaarndam 2 is één van de drie monumentale volkswoningbouwcomplexen in het Spaarndammerplantsoen in Amsterdam. Het werd in 1918 door Michel de Klerk ontworpen voor woningbouwvereniging Eigen Haard. Het gebouw is gebouwd in de stijl van de architectuurstroming ‘Amsterdamse School’.

De bouwstijl ‘Amsterdamse school’ (sinds 1916) wordt getypeerd door het gebruik van expressieve en fantastische vormen, verwant aan het expressionisme. Kenmerkend is het gebruik van veel baksteen en de versieringen in de gevels.

Het complex, met 48 woningen, is onlangs gerenoveerd en gerestaureerd.

"Spaarndam 2" is a social housing complex built in the Amsterdam School style of architecture and designed in 1918 by architect Michel de Klerk. With this sculptural block, De Klerk has made a major contribution to the street scene. Particularly beautiful are the trapezoidal windows, the sculptures above the porches reminiscent of mushrooms and starfish, the imaginative wooden attic windows and the very special organic windows of the former shop corner.

Restoration was completed this spring.

Het roemruchte tweede woonblok van Michel de Klerk aan het Spaarndammerplantsoen vormde voor Jos Cuypers (zoon van Pierre Cuypers) aanleiding om ontslag te nemen uit de Schoonheidscommissie waarvan hij voorzitter was. Cuypers kon zich niet verenigen met de ontwerpwijze van De Klerk, die de samenhang tussen constructie en decoratie had losgelaten (amsterdamse-school.nl).

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

Die Fuggerei 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 einem Rheinischen Gulden, dessen heutiger Gegemwert auf 0,88 Euro. festgelegt wurd, und zwar ohne die Inflation seit dem 16. Jahrhundert zu berücksichtigen.. Sie sprechen dafür täglich drei Gebete für den Stifter und die Stifterfamilie Fugger. Bis heute wird die Sozialsiedlung aus dem Stiftungsvermögen Jakob Fuggers unterhalten. Erbaut wurde die Anlage zwischen 1516 und 1523 unter Federführung des Baumeisters Thomas Krebs. Damals entstanden 52 Wohnungen um die ersten sechs Gassen. Die nach weitestgehend standardisierten Grundrissen erstellten Wohnungen in den durchwegs zweigeschossigen Häusern waren für die Verhältnisse der Entstehungszeit großzügig geplant. Geradezu modern war die Konzeption der Fuggerei als Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe. Die Sozialsiedlung war für von Armut bedrohte Handwerker und Taglöhner gedacht, die aus eigener Kraft, zum Beispiel wegen einer Krankheit, keinen eigenen Haushalt führen konnten. Sie konnten innerhalb und außerhalb der Fuggerei ihrem Broterwerb nachgehen und sollten im Fall der wirtschaftlichen Erholung wieder ausziehen. Den Bewohnern der Fuggerei blieb eine für die damalige Zeit geradezu luxuriöse Privatheit erhalten. Erweiterungen der Fuggerei erfolgten in den Jahren 1880 und 1938. Im Zweiten Weltkrieg wurde die Siedlung bei einem britischen Fliegerangriff in der Augsburger Bombennacht vom 25. auf den 26. Februar 1944 bei zwei Luftangriffen der Royal Air Force auf Augsburg zu etwa zwei Dritteln zerstört. b 1945 wurde die Sozialsiedlung mit Mitteln aus der Stiftung nach den Plänen von Raimund von Doblhoff nach historischem Vorbild wieder aufgebaut, sodass bereits 1947 die ersten Gebäude wieder bezogen werden konnten. In den 1950er Jahren war der Wiederaufbau abgeschlossen. Bis 1973 wurde die Fuggerei auf hinzuerworbenen angrenzenden Trümmergrundstücken um etwa ein Drittel auf heute 67 Häuser mit 140 Wohnungen erweitert. Die meisten Wohnungen in der Fuggerei sind etwa 60 Quadratmeter groß und haben einen eigenen Eingang.Das Ensemble mit acht Gassen und drei Toren ist eine „Stadt in der Stadt“ mit eigener Kirche, „Stadtmauern“ und mehreren „Stadttoren“.

The Fuggerei is the oldest existing social settlement in the world. Jakob Fugger "the Rich" donated the terraced house settlement in 1521. 150 needy Catholic citizens of Augsburg now live in the 140 flats of the 67 houses for an annual (cold) rent of one Rhenish guilder, the current value of which was fixed at 0.88 euros, without taking inflation since the 16th century into account. They say three daily prayers for the founder and the Fugger family. To this day, the social settlement is maintained from the assets of Jakob Fugger. The complex was built between 1516 and 1523 under the supervision of the master builder Thomas Krebs. At that time 52 flats were built around the first six alleys. The flats in the two-storey houses, all of which were built according to largely standardised floor plans, were generously planned for the conditions prevailing at the time of their construction. The concept of the Fuggerei as help for self-help was almost modern. The social housing estate was intended for craftsmen and day labourers threatened by poverty who were unable to run their own household by their own efforts, for example because of illness. They were able to pursue their livelihoods within and outside the Fuggerei and were to move out again when the economy recovered. The residents of the Fuggerei were able to retain a private sphere that was almost luxurious for the time.The Fuggerei was extended in 1880 and 1938. During the Second World War, two air raids on Augsburg destroyed around two thirds of the settlement during the night of bombing on 25th and 26th February 1944. From 1945 onwards, the social settlement was rebuilt according to the plans of Raimund von Doblhoff with funds from the Fuggerei Foundation, so that the first buildings could be occupied again as early as 1947. The reconstruction was completed in the 1950s. By 1973, the Fuggerei had been expanded by about a third on the adjoining rubble land acquired by the Fuggerei, and today there are 67 houses with 140 flats. Most of the flats in the Fuggerei are around 60 square metres in size and have their own entrance. The ensemble with eight alleys and three gates is a "city within the city" with its own church, "city walls" and several "city gates".

"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.

 

The Amsterdam School is a style of architecture that arose from 1910 through about 1930 in the Netherlands. The Amsterdam School movement is part of international Expressionist architecture, sometimes linked to German Brick Expressionism (Wikipedia)

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.

Das Ilhornstift ist immer noch eine soziale Wohnstiftung und besteht aus zwei Gebäuden:

Das Vorderhaus direkt an der Glockengießerstraße 39 . Es war vom Stifter als Armenhaus für 20 bedürftige Witwen bestimmt worden.

Einige Meter dahinter ist freistehend das Hofgebäude von 1457. Es ist teilweise in Fachwerk ausgeführt (was in der Lübecker Altstadt selten vorkommt) und hat ein ungewöhnlich steiles Satteldach.

 

The Ilhornstift is still a social housing foundation and consists of two buildings:

The front building directly on Glockengießerstraße 39. It had been designated by the founder as a poor house for 20 needy widows.

The courtyard building from 1457 is free-standing a few meters behind it. It is partly timber-framed (which is rare in Lübeck's old town) and has an unusually steep gable roof.
