THE 21ER PAVILION 2016

Living in the Wall

Together with the Vienna University of Technology, the 21er Haus realized an experimental housing installation, which was located in the public accessible lower-level courtyard of the museum during the summer months of 2016.
How can we ensure the optimum use of living spaces? Which spatial requirements are essential in order to live cheaply and comfortably today? In times of crisis, what influence do people’s new basic needs have on the architecture of temporary housing, such as emergency shelters, on social housing or on the renovation of old urban buildings? Do we need a paradigm shift in our approach to housing?
