‘Social housing – Definitions and design exemplars’ – New book and exhibition coming soon!

27 Mar 2017

In April, Karakusevic Carson Architects will launch a new book and exhibition at the RIBA exploring new social housing from across Europe. Produced in collaboration with RIBA Publishing, the book  and accompanying 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.

As well as those by Karakusevic Carson Architects, the book and exhibition features 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), Zanderroth Architekten (Germany).
