PREFAB HOUSING PROTOTYPE

While efforts in the first half of the 20th century were concentrated on redefining the notion of collective housing, the second half saw interests shift to other themes.
With society’s newfound obsession with material and cultural consumption, the agents of construction responded, and architecture produced many icons such as museums, theaters, concert halls, sports facilities, and skyscrapers.
Aiming to refocus the agenda of architects and their clients on the topic of housing, the exhibition provided constructive design responses to the need for social interaction, community, and the basic right to a home. Housing was framed as a particularly pertinent resource given the conundrums caused by many contemporary forms of urbanization and environmental emergencies.
