70′ – 2019

Popularized in the 1970s, the suburban areas embodied the dream of a growing middle class. Today, they have become a nightmare: interminable transport times, social relegation, environmental impact… What was the project at work in this architecture of isolated, standardized and cheap pavilions? Who are the people living there, what were their dreams and what is their reality? And finally, what is the impact of this urban model on our lives and on our environment ?
