October 18-19, 2019: Housing the Human Festival, radialsystem, Berlin

Together with renowned experts, the participating architects and designers present their final prototypes to the public as room-spanning installations, films, and performances

The prototypes range from a circular kitchen system that upcycles food waste into malleable building material, to a domestic environment that accommodates alternative, widely varied types of romantic relationships, to a living space that adapts itself autonomously to its inhabitant, and more. In addition to the prototypes that can be experienced in the space, the two-day festival includes a supporting program with guided tours, performances, and talks in which the participants present their central themes and theses.

As part of the festival, ARCH+ features will host a talk between co-publisher Anh-Linh Ngo and architecture curator James Taylor-Foster on practical futurology and transdisciplinary research.

The public is also invited to participate in a game-based event titled After Money, in which the players engage in political negotiations, economic transactions, and urban planning projects with the aim of arriving at effective and sustainable measures for housing development. The role-playing game was designed by the Urban Works Agency of the California College of the Arts specifically for Housing the Human.

The full program and schedule will be announced in mid-August.
