I want to live in a Naked House

PRESENTED ON MAY 12, 2016
IN LONDON @ VOL 10

In 'I Want to Live in a Naked House' Simon Chouffot brings a breath of a fresh air to the Londong Housing Crisis.

While London's new Mayor is striving to deliver 50,000 new homes in London each year, it is people like Simon who actually make that happen!

Simon's talk was one the most talked (and tweeted) about PechaKucha of London's Vol 11 which had the theme of HOME.

Listen and have your heart warmed as Simon tells us about how everyone deserves to have their 'home sweet home'.

From Taipei Vol. 25 - The Imagination of Social Housing

And also from the points of 'residence', 'charity', and 'externalities' to compare Taiwan with the advanced countries, to figure out how to plan the social housing through participatory design. 

彭揚凱 台灣爭取居住正義的活動召集人,從社會住宅的定義談起,由「只租不賣」、「弱勢優先」、「可負擔租金」釐清,以及「居住性」、「慈善」、「外部性」思考台灣與先進國家比較,社會住宅如何透過參與式的設計來規劃。

Portraits of Secure - Insecure Housing

BY CAROL SKINGER
@ VOL 24 ON JUL 14, 2016

Carol Skinger People fall through the cracks. Everyone here knows someone who did. Either a friend or a family member or someone you encountered yesterday. Most of us find the Tiny House Movement interesting. If you are an architecture or design student it’s a cool problem to solve. One thing folks do not picture when they say “tiny house” is a mobile home or trailer. As an artist I found two parts of my world crossing paths when I started to take commissions to paint what I call secure housing for individuals. It’s a good little niche and I use the proceeds to help support a family member who does not have secure housing (or really secure anything) who lives in a tiny home known as a trailer. While my commissioned house portraits are much loved and they are warm and illustrative, they would not be accepted in a contemporary art show. A few months ago something surprising happened. I submitted my series of small paintings of mobile homes and trailers to a juried art show at 2105 Three Rivers Arts Festival and received an important award from juror Freyda Spira Associate Curator of Drawings and Prints at Metropolitan Museum of Art, a “Best of Show”. I felt happy about this obviously, but also happy for my family member whose life inspires me to see the subject area.

BY PATRICK TIMMONS

Mexico is the most dangerous country in the world to be a journalist.

Official protection mechanisms do not work so what informal methods do journalists need to keep themselves safe? Patrick proposes a refuge that may be part of the answer.
