This cuteness of a housing project

The Daily Archive is launching its one week or less or more - no time frame - housing and house archives.

I am immediately captured by this cuteness of a housing project in Donneybrooke UK by Peter Barber architect. It is contemporary / modern yet also new urbanist in its curves and vistas, weirdly Mediterranean for UK, with solid white concrete walls and small window openings. Hear you, Bodrum, Mykanos. Slightly Rem's Fukuoka Housing in Japan (all the way at the bottom of this post.) Overall I love it; what an urban doll house (ing).
