Large parts of any Central European city landscape and neighbourhoods are covered by residential areas of mass housing blocks of flats built in 1960s-1980s. These communities and settlements are often more than 30-40 years old and have become specific places with its own history, social climate and narratives. Unique and specific metatext of almost any Central and South Eastern European city would remain unfinished without residential areas of panel blocks of flats. These areas have generated specific identity, social cohesion as well as social problems related to them. It is obvious that these urban forms failed to deliver the unique “tomorrow’s quality of life” as once declared but on the other hand they never became the completely excluded localities without the vital contacts with the city organism. Until today, these areas offer comfortable living with satisfactory standards while remaining affordable compared to the newer parts of the city.
