RipollTizon: Social Housing


Architects Pep Ripoll and Juan Miguel Tizn create a social housing complex that allows a flexible
design process: each house is considered simultaneously as a unit and in relation to the whole group.

Barcelona-based studio RipollTizon has recently


completed a social housing complex in Mallorca, the same
location where the studio had already worked on a kindergarten.

The houses in the residential complex were aggregated in


three dimensions, adapting to the diversity of situations that the
programme and environment required. "The aim is to give
significance to the nuances and tangible scale of the domesticity
and the details," state architects Pep Ripoll an Juan Miguel Tizn.
The complex respects the street alignment, adding value to the
depth of the plot. The residences feature a subtle playful element,
playing with the boundary walls, giving them importance or
obscuring them. An interior courtyard and square organises
circulation and public areas.

The housing units are generated from base module of


single or double height, harbouring the living spaces, to which
other smaller spaces are added, harbouring the private areas of
the residence.
he different possibilities of aggregation result in
T
different spatial configurations for a similar group of modules, or
in different house sizes depending on the number of modules
added. This spatial aggregation logic allows a flexible design
process in which each house is considered simultaneously as a

unit and in relation to the whole group. "It allows to create a


varied landscape," state the architects, "rich in shades and
tailored to its physical context without losing the quality, rigor
and standardisation that the social housing development
requires."

Quaroni alla fine degli anni 60 diceva che oltre all'ignoranza degli
architetti, nel gioco del progetto ci finisce l'ignranza degli urbanisti
che pensano al disegno della citt come disegno di retini, e
l'ignoranza dei decisori nei vari uffici, che riversano la loro
frustrazione per il non poter/saper fare qualcosa nel bloccare il
lavoro altrui....
E l'italia questa qua....

E quando ti vengono a dire che il tuo progetto non va bene perch
non rispetta i "canoni dell'architettura tradizionale locale"? (per i
quali intendono ovviamente il mero utilizzo di determinati materiali e
non le varie scelte tipologiche, funzionali ecc...)
