housing for the masses: master list

Housing for the Masses, Buenos Aires, housing projects

I can’t lie… I’m proud of this series of posts written in 2007 & 2008. While only the years from 1910 to 1950 are covered, researching & photographing housing projects in Buenos Aires became a passion. La Teja compiled more information in 2010, & I’m thrilled that they included projects up to the present. But I’m content with being first and making this info available in English ;-)

Read all 28 posts in the order listed below. Due to the inherent structure of blogs—new posts first, older ones last—most of this content resides at the very end of Line of Sight. I may not have written about each project chronologically, but this order reflects my exploration of an often neglected facet of Buenos Aires.

Each project listed above has been geotagged on Google Maps:

I would like to thank all the people who helped with this project, especially those who live in these buildings now & took the time to talk with me, tell me their stories & send me photos for this series. Even with all the research that’s been done, so much more needs to be done. There’s material for several Master’s degrees or PhD’s just waiting…
