future of modernist housing

The core question dealt with by the project is how the existing living space in large housing estates can be secured for the future and further developed in a sustainable manner. The aim is to map out the spatial qualities and deficits of the housing estates – in terms of both the living space and the residential environment – in order to develop recommendations for action on this basis. Key part of the project is the set up of two living labs that will be established in the chosen estates in Irkutsk and Odessa for a period of 15 months – experimental laboratories, where research will be done ‘on site’ accompanied by an ongoing dialogue with the different stakeholders.
