Webinar: Flexible Housing for Future Societies

Thursday, May 28, 2020 at 11:00am to 12:00am

Virtual Event

Our societies are changing. Can architecture reflect these changes and propose solutions to our evolving housing needs? In Denmark, 66% of families are traditional nuclear families living together, but 44% are either co-parenting, single, in an open relationship, or in another living arrangement. Community spaces and nearby amenities are considered necessities, but lack of available or affordable housing in cities such as Copenhagen presents a challenge. Additionally, global climate change and the current COVID-19 pandemic have highlighted issues and new directions for housing and societies. How can we design future cities to adapt and accommodate the growing need for flexible housing solutions?

Join Ofri Earon, Architect, PhD, Social Sustainable Housing at Ramboll for a discussion of these topics and Q&A, moderated by Janelle Knox-Hayes, Associate Professor of Economic Geography and Planning and Head, Environmental Policy and Planning Group in the MIT Department of Urban Studies and Planning (DUSP).

We hope for this session to be as interactive as possible, so please come with your thoughts for a Q&A, or feel free to send us a question in advance via the RSVP form.
