Millions of prefabricated ‘a-social’
housing units are displayed into monstruous quarters.
They all crumble at the same time (social housing
Tchernobyl ?). We imagine and picture an ideal process
where inhabitants would slowly and discreetly propose
their needed projects and the administrative organization
would carry them out as they come along, without
categorizing them or losing the precious disorder.
We studied and listed a library
of components for a number of interventions of all
kind. The political order could then selectively
carry them out when needed, according to the moment
and location. This is a way to escape the industry’s
objective logic and the image of its building site
organization. Even when centralized, the distribution
of interventions will exclusively reflect the aleatory
needs of inhabitants. In the long run, the abstract
order will dissolve and a townscape image will arise
and civilize the Berlin landscape.
