AT HOME / Building and Living in Communities
iris 1 januari 2017

Nederlandse versie

Compaction is a major challenge for housing development in Flanders. This doesn’t just entail living in smaller houses, but also – as the Flemish Government Architect suggests – sharing a (roof) garden, bicycle storage, a workspace … This is the only way to include the ‘luxury’ of extra facilities in an apartment building.

The ‘At Home‘ exhibition includes 20 examples of foreign projects that show us how collective building and living can lead to an innovative solution for more compact and affordable housing. These projects have not been realised by project developers, but by building associations, communities and cooperatives. The exhibition examines the reason why increasingly more people choose to live in collective building projects. It shows different forms of collectivity in joint building, sharing facilities for living, cooking, working together …



The traveling exhibition is organised by the City of Genk and C-Mine, in cooperation with Architectuurwijzer. It was originally created by the Deutsche Architekturmuseum in Frankfurt-am-Main and is accompanied by the book ‘Bauen und Wohnen in Gemeinschaft / Building and Living in Communities’.
