The Vertical Village: Individual, Informal, Intense.
MVRDV. Maas, Winy et al.
The Vertical Village: Individual, Informal, Intense.
There's a Block Attack in East Asia! It is transforming cities overnight. Massive towers, slabs and blocks are wiping out traditional urban villages -- communities that have evolved over the course of centuries. Packed with identical housing units, these faceless intruders offer a Western standard of living for an affordable price, but at the expense of differentiation, flexibility and individual expression. is there an alternative? Can we imagine a new model for the development of Asian cities? Can we densify these areas in such a way that the informality of the village is preserved? Can we create a vertical village -- a three-dimensional community that brings together personal freedom, diversity, flexibility and neighborhood life back into Asian -- and maybe even Western -- cities? In this book, MVDRV and The Why Factory explore this dream, wiht the help of the Berlage Institute and many other contributors.
