C3 408: Defending Density in the Year of Social Distancing
C3 408: Defending Density in the Year of Social Distancing / “Be Water, my friend” / Kindergarten: Being Flexible, Being Safe
In this issue, sociologist Richard Ingersoll defends density in times of social distancing from an architectural standpoint. Featured projects include an S-shaped residential building in Milan, loft apartments on a quay in Rotterdam, new homes at a former brewery site in Brooklyn, and more. A second feature on recent kindergarten design that expresses both flexibility and safety presents work by Tezuka Architects, sam Architecture with Querkraft, MUMA, and others. Also, water’s comforting qualities are central in projects such as Borden Natural Swimming Pool by gh3* architecture, Water Park Aqualagon by Ferrier Marchetti Studio, and Termalija Family Wellness by ENOTA.
