Manuels volume 2

Yona Friedman
Artists' Books
29.5 × 21 × 2.5 cm

This work is the second volume of a trilogy entitled ‘Manuals’, which contains Yona Friedman’s ‘Cartoon Strips’. They were published from 1975 to 1992 in more than thirty countries and twenty languages, often in the form of photocopies.

‘Housing’ is more than ‘shelter’ and less than ‘habitat’. Indeed, ‘shelter’ simply constitutes a means of protecting against outside aggression, natural or human. ‘Housing’ represents more than just protection, but provides a framework for living, for a wide set of social as self-supporting activities. Finally, ‘habitat’ is again different and involves much more than ‘housing’: it includes all elements of the environment needed for human existence.
