Talk 2: Occupied
The Open Occupied House Melbourne Speaker Series event will expand upon the issues and themes presented in RMIT Design Hub’s large-scale exhibition, Occupied.
Featuring local and international exhibitors, Occupied is an exhibition of diverse design projects and speculative propositions for the ‘new future’.
While Occupied engages with pressing issues around housing, the exhibition also encompasses ideas of adaptive reuse, environmental ethics and emerging economies.
The Speaker Series event will feature the Barcelona-based studio MAIO in dialogue with national and local architects.
Topics and projects:
Increasing economic pressures demand the invention of new creative workplaces.
The distributed home
Housing can be affordable only if we relinquish private property.
If housing is the greatest challenge of our time, it also offers the greatest opportunities.
