A Close Reading of Freidorf
Stéphanie Savio's typological reading of the settlement by Hannes Meyer is published on "Burning Farm", an online journal dedicated to architecture and domestic space.
The article "The City of Janus. A Close Reading of Hannes Meyer’s Freidorf" introduces an integral and experimental cooperative near Basel, planned by architect Hannes Meyer in 1919, its history and typology. The village typology skillfully pictures the social achievement of the cooperative movement in the Interwar period, embodying two opposite formal logics.
