MVRDV co-founder, Nathalie de Vries will take part in the panel discussion at MIT titled Housing + Form: Typologies moderated by Rafi Segal, MIT Department of Architecture and other speakers include Christoph Heinemann (IFAU), and James Shen (People’s Architecture Office).
As demographics shift and communities adopt new modes of living, design disciplines must innovate to develop new housing typologies. This panel explores what these future typologies can look like, including examples such as cohousing, modular housing, and live+work typologies, and how they can be incorporated into existing neighbourhood models within urban settings. The panel questions: How can the efficacy of innovation in housing typologies be maximized? What is the role of technology in this housing revolution? What are the barriers to implementation of any new housing typologies, and how can they be tackled?
