Housing+ On Thresholds, Transitions and Transparencies by Ulrike Wietzorrek is a comprehensive monograph about modern apartment house design and smart architectural solutions in residential structures. The book focuses on the urban apartment house and on investigating the spatial, architectural, social and communicative interfaces in residential construction.
The richly illustrated book consists of four parts: Urban Context, Ground-Floor Zone, Building Structure, and Facade. Each part presents several projects from all over the world and which address the theme particularly well. Each part also has an introductory essay that explains the theory in more detail. The showcased projects include widely published examples such as the Byker Wall residential complex in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, by Ralph Erskine, the Rue des Suisses residential building in Paris, France, by Herzog & de Meuron, and the Gemini Residence in Copenhagen, Denmark, by MVRDV.
