Unlocking the Zürich Commons / Housing

Student Work

Luca Can, Roderic Günter, Leandra Graf, Xingyu He, Meret Heeb, Sara Lazarevic

HS 2021

This Fachsemester probes into Zürich’s ‘housing commons’, and explores how housing commons may be produced, managed, used, maintained, appropriated, and how they manifest themselves in the city. Students actively used the tools and knowledge of the architect – drawing, modeling and writing – to reveal the underlying mechanisms behind these housing commons, and how they helped ease chronic housing shortages in the past, and might continue to do so in the future.

Tutors: Tom Avermaete, Irina Davidovici, Maxime Zaugg, Hamish Lonergan.
