* Residential Architecture: La Liberté by Dominique Perrault Architecture

Posted by the editors on Sunday, 13 May 2012

Residential Architecture: La Liberté by Dominique Perrault Architecture: “..“La Liberté”, social housing and office building..is a strong symbol of the urban renewal and the social development of the city. [A] new signal in the landscape..The buildings are both made up of a platform, entirely in glass, independent, with the same height (R+2) and accommodating the offices. As they are not taller than the nearby blocks, the platforms respect and extend their horizontality..Then, two blocks, with different heights, seem to be floating above the platforms and accommodate the housings. Here the architect plays with the volumes: actually the tower A is made up of two volumes of housing with equivalent proportions, and slightly shifted. It seems that the architect has piled up different volumes, one on the others: one volume of offices and one volume of housing for the tower B, one volume of offices and two shifted volumes of housing for the tower A..”  Increased urban density, decreased suburbanisation, mixed-use social housing..
