Visual exploration of social housing in Europe
From 4th to 8th of June, L’Union sociale pour l’habitat, with the support of Housing Europe’s members, organizes an exhibition « Visual exploration of social housing in Europe », at the Université Catholique in Lyon. An exploration, by images, with emblematic buildings which have marked out European social housing history, in its various aspects.
Although there is no single model of European social housing, there are commun trends in most countries that are often influenced by one another. We invite you to explore a diverse – thought- exciting history : from the first housing workers, to Modern Architecture, to the garden cities and the beginning of industrialization or the multi-family appartements era, the exhibition shows, by pictures, how social housing has always been an innovative answer to economics, social and environnemental issues, that our societies had to deal with, with a commun and great idea : live in- and so- Live a better life.
Also, L’Union sociale pour l’habitat proposes to go further, and visit the web site « Hlm en expo », virtual museum of social housing : http://musee-hlm.fr
