At the end of the 1960s the French government undertook a different dwelling policy aimed at overcoming the dichotomy between grand ensemble and pavillon, the two most popular housing alternatives at that time even if they were also subjected to harsh criticisms. ‘Villagexpo’ was intended to influence the most intimate preferences of the inhabitants, shaping desires and discarding anomalies, subjecting the individuality of the pavillon because considered subversive, and seeing the plurality as the antidote for petty bourgeois misanthropies. However, the author argues that today the neighborhood is lived in a very different way. The great ambitions of the 1960s have been dissolved in renewed efforts to strengthen the private space and the separation from the others, in cultural and income differences that accentuate diversity instead of homogeneity.
