Dwelling, 2012

    Given the collapse of the housing market under the current and prolonged recession, local professional institutions and housing-related government agencies convened a design competition to “re-invent” social housing. Sadly, it became very evident from the competition guidelines that the organizers were looking to perpetuate the existing suburban housing growth model, that has, to this day, proven to be very costly for the state in terms of infrastructure, associated maintenance costs, natural resource consumption, and also in terms of impact to the environment. We decided to participate with a contemporary housing proposal to challenge the current urban growth plans, and the strategies validated by this competition.
