SYMPOSIUM: COMMON LUXURY – LESS PRIVATE SPACE, MORE COLLECTIVE SPACE
When we think of luxury, we usually think of individual wealth. The more unattainable this exclusive form of luxury becomes for the majority of society, the more clearly a new understanding of luxury emerges today, defined by collective partaking of goods and services. Likewise in architecture the sensibility is growing towards the communal and the shared as well as the meaning of public space as a prerequisite for democratic societies. In this symposium architects from nine different countries report on how “common luxury” is increasingly becoming an attribute of the contemporary urban way of life.
