Dream – Play – Challenge: The Future of Residential Living
Im Rahmen des Festivals Women in Architecture
The act of »residing«, so fundamental to humanity, faces unprecedented challenges today. In the context of current socio-economic and cultural uncertainties, precarious ecological conditions, forced up-rootedness, re-defined concepts of gender and family, and recent pandemic realities, we have to decide: How do we want to live together in the future?
This international symposium will discuss playful and creative responses to changing desires for a home in societies that find it more and more difficult to provide one.
