One of the four panel discussion sessions at the 2022 INDE.Summit will focus on housing – ever important and constantly changing. With a diverse and expert panel, the session will explore the differing perspectives on housing within our region, the similarities between countries and the challenges faced and critical touchpoints debated.
In the session Design that Sustains us: Radical Ideas for Housing we will investigate the many iterations of housing and the new directions housing design is taking today. Cost of living and the democratisation of design has pushed designers and consumers alike, to realise new solutions, and innovation abounds. With new ideas for living and as gentrification and the urban sprawl conflict with the realities of climate change and ethical manufacturing, the session will explore how equity, accessibility and standard of living are being achieved by today’s vision makers.
