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.

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.

Amsterdam - Zaanstraat.

 

"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.

 

Happy Bench Monday :-)

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.

"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).

Augsburg, Schwaben;

 

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. ...

Wandering Vancouver's Downtown Eastside on East Hastings Street.

 

This is one of Vancouver’s 2020 Mural Festival installations. Its called “Give it Time" by Thomas Cannell.

 

Cannell is of ʔəyxwacəlenəxw – Musqueam heritage and lives on traditional Musqueam homeland, at the mouth of the Fraser River.

 

Cannell created this imagery with caterpillars and a butterfly.

 

He designed a Butterfly story because she symbolizes great transformation and personal growth within the young and young at heart in many different cultures around the world.

 

The mural finds inspiration in a teaching from Cannell’s Coast Salish culture, such that if a creature shows up frequently, it is a sign to focus on areas of personal growth—with the butterfly suggesting transformations.

 

THE PATRICIA HOTEL:

 

02 APRIL, 2021 UPDATE:

The BC Provincial Government announced purchase of the Patricia Hotel for conversion to social housing.

  

The 1910 building was designed as a doctor’s office but the owner passed away before construction was completed – as did his original intentions for the building.

 

Edward P. Mulhern purchased the building and converted it into the Patricia Hotel.

 

Much of hotel’s history spawns from its pub. Although currently known as Pat’s Pub & BrewHouse, it was originally known as The Patricia Pool Room.

 

The hotel’s Patricia Café (the pub) was one of Vancouver’s jazz hotspots at the time. Some of the musicians who played at the Patricia Café were highly influential in the transition between ragtime and jazz piano styles.

 

Most notable was Ferdinand “Jelly Roll” Morton who made Vancouver his home between 1919 and 1921.

 

Other notable musicians and entertainers who performed in the Patricia Café include Aruthur Daniels, Oscar Holden, Ada “Bricktop” Smith, Leo Bailey, Ralph Love, Billy Hoy, and Lillian Rose.

 

The Patricia Hotel has had several owners over the years. The original owners; the Mulherns owned and operated it until 1958.

 

The current owners took over in 1984, closing it shortly after for extensive renovations that eliminated the male and female communal shower rooms on each floor and fitted each room with a private washroom.

 

HASTINGS MILL BREWING CO.

Hastings Mill Brewing Company is named after the sawmill that was located at the foot of Dunlevy at the turn of the 19th century.

 

Originally opened in 1867 as Stamp’s Mill, the mill was later renamed Hastings Mill in 1870 and was the the cornerstone around which the settlement of what would eventually become Vancouver was situated.

 

Locals shopped at the Hastings Mill General Store (museum now located in Point Grey, Vancouver), children attended the Hastings Mill School and the mill itself – one of the only buildings to survive the great fire in 1886 – was a valuable part of the local economy until its closure in the 1920’s.

 

Hastings Mill has more than 20 craft beers on tap from local breweries - it does not brew.

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
