Caretaking: for Buildings and Inhabitants


The Edition WOHNEN volume presents the work of building caretakers and analyses their value not only in the running and administration of buildings, but also as a key contribution to living qualities in housing developments. Caretaking is more than simply the replacement of items and the upkeep of the original state of a building; it also involves an important social component. Accompanied by access to the film portrait Der Hauswart: Warum unsere Städte nicht auseinanderfallen(The Caretaker: Why our cities do not fall apart).
