Experiments with Life Itself. Radical domestic architectures between 1937 and 1959 · Francisco González de Canales

Despite being two decades marked by war-and its consequences-between 1937 and 1959 there were produced some of the most prominent residential experiments of the 20th century. Precisely the darkness of this age can be read as a detonating of a renewing reaction by the architectural sphere.

This way Francisco Gonzalez of Channels does it in Experiments with the life itself. The book analyzes five one-family experiences of domestic architecture that have jointly a double characteristic: on one hand it is a question of radical offers, in relation to the context of immediately previous modernity; on the other hand all the experiments were lived by his own creators.
