Abstract

Apart from the American Dream, represented by the detached house and made possible by the close-bound alliance of “home and automobile” – prophetically anticipated by Le Corbusier’s machine à habiter – the whole of the twentieth century did nothing but consolidate and spread the idea of the high-rise building as the prototype of universal housing. All over the world people had realized that living together with many others under the same roof could ensure a mutualistic bond between residents against the apparent intimacy of living alone.
