to see and record the shared pleasures of high density life, I have chosen the following cities and buildings.



Barceloneta (in Barcelona),

A Hausmann-era city block in Paris

Piraeus- a 1990s a mixed-use apartment megablock in Amsterdam

Spangen Quarter, a 1920s apartment building in Rotterdam

Ypenburg Centrum 2000, a new precinct near The Hague formed of perimeter blocks, courtyards and streets designed by one architectural firm.

A 1890s Berlin Mietskaserne apartment block

Hornbaekhus- a 1920s Copenhagen megablock

House 8, 2010, an ambitious, intriguingly manipulated large megablock in Copenhagen.
