MOV Design Sundays: JUXTAPOSE

JUXTAPOSE: Links between Loneliness, Engagement and Housing Affordability

Part I in a series of playful explorations at the Museum of Vancouver around the theme of Housing for a Connected City. Housing prices continue to rise while our connections and relationships continue to weaken. We may not be able to change the first (quite yet) but we can definitely affect the latter.

Juxtaposition brings seemingly distant ideas together. The Museum of Vancouver and Laboratory of Housing Alternatives (LOHA) invite Paul Kershaw, founder of Generation Squeeze, and emerging local architect Marianne Amodio to share their work and ideas around housing, affordability, connection and engagement in a participatory dialogue. Audience members will compare and contrast academic and everyday ideas surrounding housing affordability. Facilitators will help bridge gaps in the conversation in order to encourage everyone to recognize the values embedded in debates about housing. This session is one in a series of four Design Sundays, and can be experienced as such or as a standalone event.
