At the public opening of Home Economics at the British Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2016, we recorded the two live talks; Five New Models for Domestic Life and Beyond the Housing Crisis. 

Listen to the Five New Models for Domestic Life podcast

Home Economics proposes new models for the frontline of British architecture: the home. Participants from Home Economics discuss their designs for domestic life over five periods of occupancy: Finn Williams and Shumi Bose on Hours; Julia King on Years; and Hesselbrand on Decades. Chaired by Olly Wainwright, architecture and design critic for the Guardian. 

Listen to the Beyond the Housing Crisis podcast

The housing crisis is not only a failure of supply to meet demand but a failure of traditional models to accommodate new patterns of life. Curator Finn Williams speaks to a new generation of disruptive developers to explore what Home Economics means for the future of house-building. With Reza Merchant (The Collective), Rachel Bagenal (Naked House), John Nordon (PegasusLife), and Martyn Evans (Uncommon). 

Home Economics was open to the public throughout the 15th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia from 28 May to 27 November 2016.
