As part of Melbourne Design Week, Andy Fergus, Alexis Kalagas, Katherine Sundermann and Jana Perković (AP’s outgoing editor) have come together to create the exhibition Home Made: Reinventing How We Live in Melbourne, documenting innovative housing models that have emerged in Melbourne over the last decade, and capturing recent local innovation in sustainable and community-centred housing. A series of events will take place within the exhibition space in Campbell’s Arcade, Melbourne:

Exhibition Launch | Home Made: Reinventing How We Live in Melbourne

Thursday 19 March

Why has Melbourne become the locus of housing innovation in Australia? Over the last decade, a range of new models have emerged in response to the low-quality of investor-driven options and a growing desire for more urban lifestyles. This exhibition presents a survey of projects both unbuilt and built, which reflect new approaches to finance, design, development and operations, including Nightingale Housing, Assemble, Property Collectives, CoDev, Tripple, and the Third Way. Together, these models suggest a more optimistic and inclusive vision of how housing can shape our city. More info and tickets here.

Friday Night Talk | SPACE10 | Urban Village

Friday 20 March

SPACE10’s Urban Village Project rethinks how we design, build, finance and share our future homes, neighbourhoods and cities. The aim is to allow for cheaper homes to enter the market, make it easier to live sustainably and affordably, and ensure more fulfilling ways of living together. Speaker biography: Jana Perković is Editor at SPACE10 (and AP’s outgoing editor!), a research and design lab based in Copenhagen, on a mission to create a better everyday life for people and planet.
