At Home in Britain: Designing the House of Tomorrow re-examines how we live and showcases thought-provoking ideas for future housing design. Taking the cottage, terrace and flat as a starting point, six contemporary architecture practices from Britain, the Netherlands and France have been newly commissioned to transform the three familiar typologies to reflect the way we live and work in the 21st century. The architects participating in this exhibition are Mecanoo, Edouard François, Jamie Forbert Architects, Mӕ, vPPR and Studio Weave.
Using material from the RIBA Collections as stimulus, the architects will celebrate and critique vernacular housing of the past and explore ideas of affordability, communal living and housing density today. The new work will be displayed alongside photographs, books and drawings from the collections. (more…)
