Model Housing – Housing Models

“We are keen for the outcome of the day to be a body of work that represents the thoughts across the London schools on the current housing situation.”

MASS, the student architecture society, at the CASS school of architecture is organising a Megacrit around the theme of Housing. We have been collaborating with Levitt Bernstein Architects to link the day’s discussions thematically to the publication of their Housing Design Handbook.

We are inviting students from design units that are developing a thesis on Housing hoping that the student work explore a range of housing models, from co-working, to mixed-use, co-housing, low rise/ high density and adaptive re-use.

Students from the different schools will be intermingled and invited to present their work for 20mins to a mixed panel of studio tutors and guest critics. They will also asked to take part in an exhibition that will be on display in the main atrium throughout the day. MASS will be curating the exhibition and preparing an accompanying pamphlet to act as an informal insert into the Housing Design Handbook: it will act a representation of the architecture student body’s contribution London’s current Housing Crisis.
