The Future of Housing

Research project

The Future of housing is the theoretical part of my Master Thesis. I went through an extensive research phase that explored how the housing situation in European cities might develop until 2040. As part of that research, I undertook an international survey, spoke to the head of the German Museum for Architecture and conducted 9 user interviews with potential users. I asked questions about their living situation now and in the future. In order to present the results, I created a profile for each user that summarises what is most important to them and contains a proposal for what their perfect home.

The process of the work is documented here.
