- Cities; Local to Global - Lo Barnechea Social Housing Project
Melbourne University - Urban Planning - May 2012
- Provide 150 individual housing units of initial floor space of 40 square metres AND a community centre on a 25,195 square metre block.
As funding per household was extremely limited there needed to be decisions made as to what to include and exclude from the dwellings - this came down to what was defined as a ‘necessity’. The goal was to involve stakeholders to ensure the production of a product which meets the users requirements, this was achieved via participatory design.
