By: Holliss, Frances
The live/work story is well known and throughout the world millions of people experience it every day. However, until now, the workhome has not been analysed as a building type.
For the first time, Frances Holliss traces the history of the workhome, analyses its contemporary form, and assess its social, architectural and urban potential. This book unearths the reasons this building type has not been studied or theorised before and explains the problems encountered by the live/work movement. In the context of global economic and environmental crisis, and a developing information economy, this is presented as a building type with considerable relevance and potential.
Beautifully illustrated with remarkable pictures of largely forgotten buildings, this book is essential reading for any professional or student architect interested in the future of building for work.
