Le Corbusier response

Le Corbusier’s “Mass-Production Houses” and “The Manual of Dwelling” reminds me of The New Topographics photography movement of the 1970s.

The New Topographics all depicted urban or suburban realities under changes.

Joe Deal is one of the founding artists of the New Topographics movement. He dealt with the radical ways in which the American West was being reshaped by development.


Bill Owen’s photography series, Suburbia is a collection of words and black and white photography of suburban Livermore, California life in 1972.

“What Tiberio has done is to assemble a typological survey of how the other half lives in the Twenty-first century crisis of bleeding borders and uncomfortable crusades of xenophobia against the displaced.”
