Social Housing – Definitions and Design Exemplars

Across the UK and Europe a new generation of practices are transforming public housing. Responding to continued high demand, new funding methods and a reinvigorated public sector, architects are re-addressing how homes are delivered at larger scales, piloting new methods to achieve new high standards of design.

Based on a new publication produced in collaboration with RIBA Publishing, this exhibition captures some of the best and most innovative examples of social housing at a critical juncture for the sector. Drawing together 24 case studies by 20 practices from eight European countries, it looks at a range of typologies, emerging design approaches and refurbishment strategies. Together they offer a challenge to housing professionals to rethink how we build and highlight the vital role of public and low cost housing in the life of our cities.

Curated by Karakusevic Carson Architects featuring projects by Adam Khan Architects (UK), Assemble (UK), Avenier & Cornejo Architectes (France), BIQ/Hans van der Heijden (The Netherlands), Einszueins (Austria), Hawkins\Brown (UK), Haworth Tompkins Architects (UK), Lacaton & Vassal (France), LAN architecture (France), Mae LLP (UK), Mecanoo (The Netherlands), Mikhail Riches Architects (UK), Mole (UK), Niall McLaughlin Architects (UK), s333 architecture + Urbanism (UK), Sergison Bates (UK), Trévelo & Viger-Kohler Architectes (France), Witherford Watson Mann (UK) and Zanderroth Architekten (Germany)
