With the jointly conceived exhibition “Think Global, Build Social! Architectures for a Better World” the Architekturzentrum Wien and the Deutsches Architekturmuseum direct their attention to the question of contemporary architecture’s social responsibility.

“Think Global. Build Social!” shows current examples of an alternative, socially committed architecture which, with minimum financial expenditure but a great deal of initiative and creativity, attempts to improve the living conditions of people in less privileged areas of the world.

openhouse-magazine-a-raw-paradise-architecture-can-lis-by-jorn-utzon-mallorca-spain1 I have posted about Can Lis before, but when i saw on one of my favourite blogs, somewhere i would like to live, these wonderful pictures, i had to post again. this is my kind of architecture to a tee. in all it is a traditional building of the area made our of the local stone, with just enough architectural details and a wonderful use of space, that doesn’t make the building stand out, yet fit into its surroundings and become a wonderful family home, and place to live. and who could pic a better position.

Once thought to be the most densely populated place on Earth, with 50,000 people crammed into only a few blocks, these fascinating pictures give a rare insight into the lives of those who lived Kowloon Walled City. Taken by Canadian photographer Greg Girard in collaboration with Ian Lamboth the pair spent five years familiarising themselves with the notorious Chinese city before it was demolished in 1992.The city was a phenomenon with 33,000 families and businesses living in more than 300 interconnected high-rise buildings, all constructed without contributions from a single architect.
