Reimagining how we live

Reimagining how we live

15 November 2019

The Alternative Housing Ideas Challenge attracted international recognition with over 230 submissions. 7 proposals from Australia and around the world were shortlisted by a panel of experts.

As part of the Sydney Architecture Festival, the 7 shortlisted teams gave us insight into the ideas and the inspiration behind their work. The presentations were followed by a panel discussion of experts considering what the future of housing could look like.

The presenters provided innovative models that would increase alternative and affordable housing supply across the city. These models included financing, design, building, ownership and management, and are expected to provide the City with lessons for future projects.

A panel discussion of experts then considered what the future of housing could look like.
