Architecture, Contemporary Architecture
Their texts have been crucial in developing a critical perspective on the work of the renowned architectural duo. Lacaton & Vassal are known for a radical critique of the modernist subsistence level, which had defined the size of a dwelling as a purely economic function and budget. By liberating the discourse of social housing from this arithmetic, they showed that spatial generosity does not depend primarily on budget, but on the respect of the architects for the lives of users.
