Otto Hainzl - Corviale, Kehrer Verlag, 2015, Heidelberg

 

Hardcover with belly band, texts by Angelika Fitz, Martin Hochleitner, Otto Hainzl, Gabriele Kaiser.

Corridors extending an entire kilometer, insurmountable stairways, graphic codes, illegally occupied zones, vast murals: Corviale, built between 1975 and 1982, is a housing project on the outskirts of Rome. Ten stories high, it is nearly one kilometer long and houses over 8,000 residents — a whole city in a single building. Corviale is also a social architectural manifesto, charged with traces of human domestic existence. The Austrian photographer Otto Hainzl lived in Europe's longest apartment block for an extended period. His images speak of vision versus reality, of the building, its peculiar features, and the many different living environments that can be found there.
