OIKONET:  Erasmus Lifelong Learning Programme

Contemporary living patterns in mass housing in Europe ISCTE- University Institute of Lisbon, Portugal


14 - 19 July 2014


The objective of this international workshop will be to develop a cross-disciplinary dialogue aimed at finding answers to the meanings, ways and forms of contemporary living patterns in mass housing in Europe.

The overall housing design process will be addressed, starting from participation and ending with fabrication. The design strategies will be based on: Co-creation methods (community participation, participatory design theory and techniques, generative design research); Contemporary living patterns (social housing; housing and quality of life; domestic scenario; new ways of life; new family structures; the changing of demographic trends and new housing needs; energy efficiency and construction materials); and Digital tools CAD / CAM (parametric design, modular systems, and digital fabrication).
