Storefront is pleased to announce Total Housing 01: Apartments, an exhibition of the results of the first in a succession of architecture competitions circling around the book Total Housing . Organized with Architizer.com and Actar Publishers, this first iteration concentrates on the typologies of apartments. The exhibition will showcase the five winning entries, which were chosen from nearly 400 submissions, along with selected commentary from the jury. Input from the public will be included and encouraged as a component of the exhibition. A selection of projects will be on display and the exhibition will be accompanied by a newsprint publication.
About the Total Housing Competitions
Actar publishers, Architizer.com, and Storefront for Art and Architecture are launching Total Housing , a series of competitions to create today’s definitive source for residential designs that go beyond standardized and canonical models of inhabitation.
Total Housing 01: Apartments is the first in the series of Total Housing Competitions. The city is resurgent after years of suburban supremacy, but new technologies and socio-economic shifts have made traditional models for urban housing obsolete. Architects and designers are at the forefront of creating physical spaces that react to these new urban conditions, and we want to see them. Total Housing 01: Apartments looks for residential projects that address the incongruity between outmoded ideas of domestic space and contemporary urban lifestyles. The exhibition explores apartments that demonstrate innovation through material applications, programmatic arrangements, technological implementations, or radical conceptual propositions.
This exhibition is made possible with the generous support of NRI, F.J. Sciame Construction Company, Inc. and Miele, Inc
