The come-back of collective housing

Post de: Constantin Goagea

In the early 1990s, the heritage contained in the communist neighborhoods was unbearable. It led to deep frustrations and neurosis due to their massiveness and complete absence of identity, but mostly by the general feeling that nothing could be done to change it.
The first reaction to that state of affairs in the town was compensated by the fantasy of the countryside ranch, the idyllic image intertwined with that of a swimming pool and the high wage that filled your fridge. Thus, it resulted in a true flight of the well off, less the middle class, almost inexistent at that time. At the level of motivation and reaction, this dwelling model is widely spread today.
