The five residential blocks that make up the Ville Verdi in Vienna, Austria’s capital city, lean back almost lazily in a way that makes one imagine that the apartments might have sloping floors, with furniture sliding inexorably towards the rear elevation. Of course this is not the case, but that sense of fantasy is enhanced by their extraordinary location.

High school Clouet
'Transformation' is a word that is used too commonly in schools, but in the case of the high school Francois Clouet in Tours, central France, it is appropriate. The original school, built in the 1960s, was constructed inexpensively, and it showed. Now architect Dubosc & Associés has retained and upgraded one of the buildings and built two new ones, giving the school an entirely new look and feel. 'I must say - with a little pride,' said Eric Dubosc, ‘that the teachers and the pupils, who did not like the old school at all, adore the new one.'
