contributed by javivazquez

This project in Spain consists of public housing with 141 two-, three- and four-bedroom units, designed by Thom Mayne and built by the EMT in the PAU of Carabanchel, Madrid. It is located near other recent housing projects by Isozaki, Alejandro Zaera, Sancho and Madridejos and others. The structure consists of an horizontal and a vertical element, built perpendicular to each other to create an L-shaped housing block with a view of the surrounding landscape.

keiralx says:
this project was such a MASSIVE disappointment. Public housing it is not. Private gated housing it is. It seems a standard format in the suburbs of Madrid, but I have to say as a Londoner, the concept of gated communities is elitist, exclusive and decisive. Such a shame, because the architecture itself is very interesting. The communal 'streets' give the impression of urbanity, but i saw none here. AND i was almost knocked down by a resident in an SUV who didn't like architecture students.
