Reconceptualizing Urban Housing

The global housing crisis has created an urgent need for housing worldwide, especially in urban centres. In the race to build more homes faster, many important factors are being overlooked including community, sustainability and wellness. From city to city the context differs dramatically, but the problem is universal: how can urban collective housing be more liveable? How do we ensure that the design of housing will enhance inhabitants’ wellbeing and quality of life? This exhibition brings together architects from around the globe with unique perspectives on collective housing, primarily in or near urban areas. The diverse range of projects exhibited will showcase new thinking around housing, a shift in the status quo – projects that focus on liveability and identity.
