"Optimistic Suburbia 2 - Middle-Class Large Housing Complexes"

16 de June 2021


The “Optimistic Suburbia II - Middle-Class Large Housing Complexes” has its starting point in a research on large housing complexes in the outskirts of Lisbon, Luanda and Macau, then enlarged to Antwerp and Milan. In the last decades of the XX century, these housing complexes were instrumental for the urban growth, showing similarities as well as differences in Europe and beyond. Drawing from this context the conference intends to open the reflection on these complexes on broad realities, showing the multiple features of urbanizations in several geographical, chronological and social contexts. International Conference | 16 - 19 June 2021 | Lisbon.
