In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, housing – as a right – re-emerged due to local housing, migration and health emergencies. In light of an eclipse of a general discourse on housing, a new secular and international ethics arose, both foreign and superior to nation states. This book returns to a broader notion of housing: using metaphors of sanitary and salvific reinstatement, it retrieves case studies from the 1950s for re-conceptualising the housing question in architecture.
