Home and Community: Lessons from a Modernist Housing Scheme

Sandra Costa Santos, Nadia Bertolino, Stephen Hicks, Camilla Lewis, Vanessa May

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This book explores the connections between architecture, home and community. It is based on the empirical examination of domestic experiences in a post-war modernist housing scheme: Claremont Court in Edinburgh, designed by Basil Spence. Offering a novel cross-disciplinary approach, it broadens our understanding of home and community by showing how residents create homes and articulate a sense of belonging, which is inescapably bounded by architecture. The first part of the book explains the relevance of Claremont Court through a cross-disciplinary reading from both an architectural and a socio-cultural perspective. The second part explores the domestic experiences of the current residents. The final part further develops the relationship between architecture, home and community, offering valuable insights for current debates on housing, home and community. A must-read for researchers from architecture, urban studies and the social sciences with an interest in housing. The book also provides ideas for conducting interdisciplinary research using a combination of text-based and visual methods.
