Project Home: How Do We Live?

A big percentage of a city’s building stock is destined to housing. The sort of housing that is continuously repeated, not the one-of-a kind client-tailored house. As cities’ growth fluctuate, housing demands vary. Thus, housing in a city is a constant enterprise: built, converted, recycled, and restored. Housing is the stuff cities are made of. 

Cities house housing. Housing house lives. Lives have changed significantly. Has housing in the city followed these changes? Is urban housing being designed accordingly?

Different lifestyles need different homes. Different homes develop within housing types. Housing types respond to and create a particular urban condition and vice versa. This is a problem that has been thought of before. The question of how to design housing has accompanied the discipline throughout the
last century, but many housing design paradigms still remain the same. Thus, the goal of the workshop is to design new housing types that expand the existing housing repertoire. These new types will respond to current and future lifestyles and contribute to resolve specific urban demands.

As part of Project Home, a research and pedagogic program on housing launched in 2015, the series of workshops How Do We Live? analyze domesticity in different urban scenarios. This series will continue as a collaboration between University of Liverpool School of Architecture and Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, with a one-week workshop at Santiago - Campus Lo Contador.

This workshop will take Santiago’s housing and urban conditions as its case study. The question for this workshop is: what defines the housing crisis of Santiago today? By forcing the notion of crisis as a methodology, students will question a specific Santiago housing type and propose alternative designs for each of them. Santiago´s housing crisis will be framed through the analysis of shared spaces within residential compounds.

We will look closely at some of the city’s exemplary residential projects. Analyzing the framework in which these housing projects were produced in Santiago will allow us to assess the relationship between current models of residence and design solutions. The goal is to productively critique preconceived notions of spatial efficiency, programmatic and private versus public segregation and other modernist inheritances and envision future schemes.

The workshop will take place in Santiago between August 10th and August 17th, 2018.
