AD Classics: Pruitt-Igoe Housing Project / Minoru Yamasaki

first_imgShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyFew buildings in history can claim as infamous a legacy as that of the Pruitt-Igoe Housing Project of St. Louis, Missouri. Built during the height of Modernism this nominally innovative collection of residential towers was meant to stand as a triumph of rational architectural design over the ills of poverty and urban blight; instead, two decades of turmoil preceded the final, unceremonious destruction of the entire complex in 1973. The fall of Pruitt-Igoe ultimately came to signify not only the failure of one public housing project, but arguably the death knell of the entire Modernist era of design.+ 8Save this picture!The gleaming towers of Pruitt-Igoe were to have been a “Manhattan on the Mississippi.” .

The rapid growth of American cities before 1920 had slowed dramatically, and even reversed in some cities – including St. Louis, Missouri. More alarmingly for urban experts, those residents flowing out of the cities into the suburbs were largely the wealthier classes, depriving businesses of their clientele and the civic governments of their tax revenue. This mass exodus, they believed, left a vacuum which was gradually filled with slums – the dreaded “blight” which could only be cured by being expunged. With the Housing Act of 1949, $1 billion (over $10 billion in 2017) was set aside to provide cities with loans for slum clearance and redevelopment, sparking urban renewal projects across the United States.[1]In 1950, St. Louis was preparing to create 5800 units of affordable housing with the federal funds provided by the Housing Act. City engineer Harold Bartholomew and mayor Joseph Darst, aspiring for utmost efficiency, decided to satisfy almost half of this goal with a single, massive complex. Initially planned in the twilight of the United States’ Jim Crow segregation laws, the project was to be divided along racial lines: black residents would live in the Wendell Olliver Pruitt homes, while their white counterparts would occupy the James Igoe apartments. However, as the project was not completed until 1954—after the ruling in the Supreme Court case Brown vs. Board of Education made “separate but equal” segregation illegal in the United States—it was integrated into a single complex, Pruitt-Igoe.[2]Save this picture!Much of the landscaping and community amenities Minoru Yamasaki originally proposed were never built, contributing to Pruitt-Igoe’s eventual downward spiral. ImageVia pruitt-igoe.comThis single, enormous project began with the clearing of DeSoto-Carr, considered one of the least habitable neighborhoods in St. Louis.[3] In its place was to be built a collection of 33 modular 11-story apartment towers designed by Minoru Yamasaki of Hellmuth, Yamasaki, and Leinweber. Occupying 57 acres of land, the towers provided accommodation for up to 10,000 residents in 2,870 apartment units. While the composition of residential high-rises towering over manicured plazas drew heavy inspiration from Le Corbusier’s Ville Radieuse concept, the buildings themselves more closely resemble his later Unité d’Habitation projects: long, narrow slab structures with window galleries running 85 feet along their length. One notable feature designed to improve both functional and cost efficiency were the skip-stop elevators, which only opened onto every third floor. Staircases then provided access to the floors immediately above and below. The combination of the two was intended to replicate community life on the sidewalks in a high-rise setting, where children and adults alike could gather in sheltered safety.[4,5]Even before it was completed, Pruitt-Igoe was not built as intended. Yamasaki had proposed a number of design elements which were never built: low-rise units dispersed among their larger counterparts, playgrounds, ground-floor restrooms, and additional landscaping were all deemed too expensive by the Federal Housing Administration and cut from the project. It was this constant emphasis on economy that dictated features like the skip-stop elevators, and which only hinted at the troubled times ahead.[6]Save this picture!Courtesy of “The Pruitt Igoe Myth”Save this picture!Courtesy of “The Pruitt Igoe Myth”Although Pruitt-Igoe was by no means an award-winning project even at the time of its opening, its design was nonetheless lauded by publications like the Architectural Forum, which had named it the Best High Apartment in 1951. (In 1965, this same magazine reexamined Pruitt-Igoe and reversed its stance, declaring the project a failure.) Unfortunately, while federal policy had struck down legal segregation, the attitudes of many Americans—including many of those living in St. Louis—had yet to catch up. The integration of the Pruitt and Igoe apartments resulted in most of the white residents leaving en masse, along with those black residents who could afford single-family dwellings elsewhere. The only tenants left were those who literally could not afford to go anywhere else.[7]Pruitt-Igoe’s fall from grace began almost immediately. At its peak occupancy in 1957, 9% of the complex remained vacant; by 1960, this figure climbed to 16%, and it later skyrocketed to 65% by 1970. Whereas the federal government had provided the funds to build Pruitt-Igoe, its maintenance was to be supported directly by the tenants’ rent. With the apartments occupied almost exclusively by a dwindling number of low-income residents, a number of whom subsisted on welfare, there was little money to keep up the 33 towers, and they subsequently fell into disrepair. The situation became a vicious cycle: poor maintenance drove out more tenants, bleeding out the already-strained budget and allowing the buildings to become more and more derelict, repelling even more tenants.[8,9]Save this picture!After two decades of crime and increasing maintenance issues, Pruitt-Igoe was ultimately demolished between 1972 and 1977. ImageVia pruitt-igoe.comSave this picture!Courtesy of Wikimedia user Cadastral (Public Domain)It was in this atmosphere that Pruitt-Igoe became a hotbed for criminal activity. The galleries and staircases meant to provide safe community spaces instead became the dominion of gangs; residents nicknamed the galleries “gauntlets,” treacherous passages in which they were harassed or even assaulted on their way home. The complex’s reputation soured so dramatically that some maintenance and delivery workers refused to enter. By 1958, the St. Louis Housing Authority petitioned the federal government for funding to renovate Pruitt-Igoe; although some of Yamasaki’s originally-intended amenities were subsequently installed in 1965, the renovation failed to address the deeper social and fiscal issues which had caused Pruitt-Igoe’s prompt nosedive into squalor.[10]In 1972, the federal government finally determined that Pruitt-Igoe was beyond rescue. Over the next few years, the 33 towers were demolished by means of dynamite implosions, leaving behind a vast urban wasteland in the fabric of St. Louis which, to this day, has yet to be filled. Only 600 residents had been left when the order came, a far cry from the 10,000 originally expected to fill the complex. The fall of Pruitt-Igoe came to be seen as symbolic: more than the failure of one housing project, and more than the failure of the such projects in general, it was touted as the failure of Modernist architecture itself. Architecture critic Charles Jencks famously declared, “Modern architecture died in St. Louis, Missouri on July 15, 1972, at 3.32 pm.”[11] In an interview for Architectural Review, Minoru Yamasaki said simply of Pruitt-Igoe: “It’s a project I wish I hadn’t done.”[12]Save this picture!The televised demolition of Pruitt-Igoe sparked widespread discussion over what precisely caused the project to fail so dramatically. ImageCourtesy of Wikimedia user Cadastral (Public Domain)In the end, it is as unfair to place sole blame for Pruitt-Igoe’s failure on its architectural design as it would be to completely exonerate it. It took the combination of unfortunate design choices, deep-seated racism, and poorly-structure housing policy to produce the twenty-year fiasco that was Pruitt-Igoe. A forest has since grown on the land where the 33 towers once stood, disguising the physical rift they left after their destruction in the 1970’s. Their legacy is not so easily disguised, however, and whomever one chooses to blame for its eventual downfall, the name Pruitt-Igoe remains synonymous with the failure of an entire design philosophy.

The loft is located in the heart of the historical centre of Athens, Greece, a unique urban environment at the foot of the Acropolis that features a combination of numerous masterpieces of neoclassical architecture with modernistic buildings and industrial warehouses.Save this picture!© I&O PhotographySituated in this context, this loft is a refurbishment of an old textile workshop. The aim of the renovation, as conceived and designed by the architect, was to preserve the existing structural components and industrial aesthetic of the previous use while transforming the space into a modern, comfortable and luxurious habitation. To this end, the concrete beams were exposed and restored but also modern elements have been added in the form of new metal finishes and polished concrete floors.Save this picture!PlanThe singularity of the loft lies in the combination of natural materials (steel, concrete and wood) with a minimal but high quality decoration (including a selection of modern furniture mixed with retro and vintage pieces) creating a casual and intimate atmosphere. The loft was conceived as open-plan generating spacious areas while the glass façade and rear windows allow for the maximum transparency, natural light and exterior views.Save this picture!© I&O PhotographyThe spatial organization of the loft is conceived as a division between the areas in common use (kitchen, dining area, living room, study area) and the private quarters (bedrooms and bathrooms). However, the sliding glass and metal doors contribute to the visual connection of all spaces, whereas the blackout curtains can create the necessary isolation when it is required. In addition, flexibility was one of the fundamental design principles, as exemplified by the movable kitchen island and the divider curtains that create the possibility for a temporary guest room in the living room.Save this picture!SectionBeing at the last floor of the building the loft provides a tranquil haven above the busy city life, with a spaciousveranda that offers magnificent views to the Acropolis and to Mount Lycabettus.

A House in house concept makes it profitable to transform cultural heritage in rural districts into attractive housing. The architecture and local identity is preserved. This can provide a blossoming local development and lead to an increase in the quality of life. Rural Denmark has a rich building heritage which is at risk. Old factories and station buildings are left empty and fall into disrepair. This is mainly because there isn’t the same economic incentive to transform these buildings as there is in the bigger cities.Save this picture!© Rasmus Hjortshøj – COASTIn the pilot project Fabers Factories, Arcgency shows how it is possible to rethink the concept of dwelling. By developing a modular building method we are creating affordable, attractive and sustainable housing. This method is applicable in a broad context and provides a means through architecture for each site to preserve its local identity, expressing interesting spatial qualities; variety and tactility. Transformation Strategy – House in house. When using traditional building methods it is expensive to transform existing buildings. Energy optimization, the challenges of fitting to an existing building and the risk of unforeseeable expenses are factors that increase expenditure when compared to building new.  Save this picture!elevationArcgencys ‘House in house’ concept turns the challenges into new potential and creates a new housing typology with a strong identity and a small environmental footprint. Faber’s Factories are characterized by its remarkable space sequences. The body of the building shows how the factory has been shaped by its context and how it has developed over time. Instead of adapting the factory to the apartments, Arcgency has chosen to adapt the apartments to the factory.  Save this picture!© Rasmus Hjortshøj – COASTSave this picture!Save this picture!© Rasmus Hjortshøj – COASTThe standardised and the unique.

When working with adaptive reuse the office is concerned with using as much of the existing structure as possible. The new material that is added has to be sustainable and be able to be mounted mechanically (with screws etc.), so it is possible to disassemble,reuse and recycle at a later date. Save this picture!© Rasmus Hjortshøj – COASTWe wanted to experiment with the materials used to build Fabers Factory.  The Core is built entirely of wood. This includes load bearing constructions, insulation, ceilings, walls and floors. In addition to being sustainable wood offers additional advantages: The project has succeeded in developing a modular building method that can be applied to create affordable, healthy and sustainable housing. Housing that can create the framework for a unique home. We are excited to see how the future tenants will receive the project and make their individual mark on the place. Save this picture!© Rasmus Hjortshøj – COASTThe core and the shell – Instead of renovating all surfaces and square meters, most of the factory is kept in its current state. Only those building parts that are in a critical condition are renovated. Inside the raw spaces of the factory an independant wood construction is built standing free of the existing structure. We call the new wood construction “The core” and the existing building “The shell”. Each dwelling consists of a core and a shell. Save this picture!© Rasmus Hjortshøj – COASTThe core constitutes the primary part of the dwelling. It is compact, energy efficient and built in natural materials. It offers excellent daylight conditions, a comfortable indoor climate and great spatial variation. The core comprises an open kitchen-dining area, bedrooms and a bathroom. The shell is an unheated and uninsulated flexible space. Depending on the season it can be used for activities which are commonly hard to fit in a regular dwelling i.e. atelier, indoor playground and workshop. Save this picture!© Rasmus Hjortshøj – COASTThe wall between the core and the shell is built from glass panels that can be completely opened up creating a fluid boundary. You percieve the dwelling as a large and flexible space. During the cold months the wall can be closed but the glass ensures that the visual contact is intact. It is in the meeting between the raw unheated spaces and the new core that the building heritage is conveyed. The original surfaces with their traces from wear and tear and the vaulted brick ceiling is a stark contrast to the new and concise wooden constructions – a juxtaposition that makes the dwelling something special. It communicates the history whilst simultaneously creating a setting for something new. Project gallerySee allShow lessIE School of Architecture and Design Interview Jeanne Gang to Discuss Architecture a…ArticlesThe Good Life House / MRTN ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Rasmus Hjortshøj – COAST Fabers Factories / Arcgency CopyAbout this officeArcgencyOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentAdaptive reuseOn FacebookRyslingeDenmarkPublished on November 18, 2020Cite: “Fabers Factories / Arcgency” 18 Nov 2020.

Quartier Equipetrol is located in a strategic point of the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra in Bolivia, where the largest number of business hubs, a wide variety of services, recreation points, and security are located. It is, today, the area of the city with the highest added value. The Quartier Equipetrol concept is based on the idea of achieving a residential building for young professionals who seek to combine the amenities offered by the area with the best spatial quality that can exist in small spaces at affordable prices. The building consists of 15 levels, 5 of which are in the base of the tower where the technical rooms, parking and 2-bedroom apartments are located.Save this picture!© Cristobal Palma / Estudio PalmaThe other 10 levels are in the tower where vertical circulations connect to 2 1-bedroom apartments of 46m2 each. The geometric composition on the façade starts from planes that rise from the floor separating the tower from the base. The verticality of the tower is highlighted by two of these planes containing a volume full of apartments. On the tower we can find two voids that divide the volume, where the social amenities are located. The apartments in the front and rear façade are covered by a modular skin of vertical and horizontal parasols that are repeated on each level. The wide areas of transparent windows are in equilibrium with the parasol modules, providing the maximum use of natural light while protecting the apartments from overexposure to sunlight. Parasols thus help reduce the costs of cooling and the greenhouse effect within the apartment.Save this picture!© Cristobal Palma / Estudio PalmaSave this picture!Tower type planSave this picture!© Cristobal Palma / Estudio PalmaThe apartments are resolved in a rectangular plan. The windows are located on the longest side of the rectangle, thus creating well-lit interior spaces with great visuals of the city, regardless of the user’s physical location within the apartment. The combination of both façade elements, windows and parasols provides an interior display of light and shadow during the winter season, and views of city scenery framed by the multiple large windows as if resembling artistic paintings.

Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of Researching massive growth in giving. Social housing provider launches grantmaking Longleigh Foundation Social housing provider Stonewater has created a national charitable foundation which will make grants to support elderly people, young people, women in crisis due to domestic abuse, and residents with physical or mental disabilities.It established it “in response to the impact of Government Budget and welfare cuts affecting some of its most disadvantaged residents”. It has an endowment of £500,000.George Blunden, Chair of Stonewater, which manages 30,000 homes in the UK, explained:“The financial impact on housing associations of recent Budget decisions and policy reform has put immense pressure on our ability to provide enhanced services and support over and above our core offering. “Stonewater can provide a roof and a place to call home but many people need additional help beyond their initial housing needs. This is what inspired us to establish the Longleigh Foundation, which can work with our most vulnerable residents, supporting them with opportunities to create better lives.”Three areas of grantmakingLongleigh’s grant-giving programme has been split into three areas covering:• community projects aimed at health and well-being, isolation and inclusion, employment and training;• individual hardship cases;• and funding for strategic research.The Foundation has already agreed funding awards for some projects.In Southampton, it is financing an innovative ‘Recovery Toolkit’ programme at Stonewater’s Southampton Women’s Refuge which provides residents in crisis with specialist support and coping strategies for breaking the cycle of domestic abuse.It is also funding an IT equipment and digital ambassadors scheme to help tackle digital exclusion among older people in its communities, and a project for residents in Stonewater’s supported housing schemes, aimed at promoting healthier lifestyles.

New Purdue Animal Welfare Center is about Science

first_img Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Jan 22, 2014 SHARE Purdue Animal Welfare SciencePurdue has announced the creation of the Purdue University Center for Animal Welfare Science, to be led beginning on February first by associate professor of animal sciences Candace Croney, described as a national voice on animal welfare.The center will promote the welfare of animals through its research, education and outreach. Dean of Purdue College of Agriculture Jay Akridge says the “science” portion of the name is of key importance.“We have a large and important research group from the College of Agriculture, the College of Veterinary Medicine and the USDA-ARS (Agricultural Research Service) Livestock Behavior Research Unit, and one of the really key elements of this center is to bring that research into the dialogue on animal welfare issues.”Croney says for many consumers there is a heightened awareness and concern for the treatment of animals, including those in food production.“One of the things that we’re going to be able to do with the center is show very clearly that we as scientists and as members of the land grant university, really while we care about producing food and contributing to Indiana and the nation’s economy and expanding globally and so on, really, genuinely care about the animals and what they themselves are experiencing. That matters and from an ethical perspective as well as practical perspective it’s a major priority for us.”Will this new endeavor put Purdue closer to the spotlight of organizations like HSUS?“I think that’s certainly a possibility,” said Akridge. “And it may be a reality. We certainly have been doing work in these areas before. We have scientists in these two colleges and the Livestock Behavior Research Unit. That work is going to be more visible and may bring more controversy as a result, but I think it’s just essential that science find its way into these dialogues and debates.”Akridge says Croney is well prepared for all aspects of the center’s directorship. Hear more in the HAT interview:Jay AkridgeHer appointment as director was announced jointly this week by Akridge and Willie M. Reed, dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine.The center now hosts the largest collaborative group of scientists in the U.S. working in a variety of related fields and brings together diverse, cross-disciplinary approaches to animal well-being issues in animal and poultry science, veterinary medicine, psychology, philosophy, genetics, public health and zoology.Croney’s responsibilities will include soliciting both traditional and nontraditional sources of extramural funding for the center’s research and outreach activities, serving as spokesperson and resource person on public policy welfare issues, and disseminating knowledge, guidance and expertise of animal welfare science through a variety of media.She also will be charged with developing and maintaining national and international relationships with leaders in animal agriculture, animal welfare faculty at other universities and institutions, non-government organizations and the public.
