Benziwil – Hinter den Platten

Benziwil, a 1960s housing development designed by architect Otto Glaus under „Betaville,“ offered affordable housing and public amenities. Planning began in 1966 and took 22 years to complete. The residents are staged and depicted in their apartments, with images reflecting their personal space and hobbies. Each image captures the essence of their unique apartments, showcasing the diverse tapestry within Benziwil, despite the apartments being the same size, sharing the same layout. This project unveils personal stories and passions, intertwining architecture with the individuals who call it home.
