The final in a string of social housing posts today; these examples are important reminders that the state/design of government-financed housing does not need to default to the dreary or depressing archetype they so stereotypically represent. It also reinforces the notion that architects are not only a service industry catering to the wealthy, but rather an essential tool to the development and design of projects that not only enhances the urban environment, but the lives of those who inhabit them as well.
