Sustainable and affordable collective social housing

In this lecture, French architects Anne-Flore Guinée and Hervé Potin will share their highly regarded and publicized work in sustainable and affordable collective social housing.

Their work can be described as a colorful collage of materials and concepts that share a common concern for ecology, energy-saving, and the use of organic materials that surprise and outperform established solutions.
