Langlands and Bell use the architectural model to investigate patterns of social identification, interaction and conditioning. Ivrea is the town near Turin in northern Italy where Olivetti is based. The town was planned in the 1930s by a team of Rationalist architects and designers in an attempt to provide for the needs of the company’s workforce and their families. This work is made up of ten elements which depict the floor plans of various industrial, domestic and leisure spaces in the town.
