From Justice Activity Leader's Perspective


From Taipei Vol. 25 - The Imagination of Social Housing

Yang-kai Peng
 is the justice activity leader of Taiwan. He talked from the definition of social housing, from 'only rent not for sell', 'vulnerable priority', and 'affordable rent' ways to clarify. 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

@ 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.

Rethinking Resettlement

@ VOL 18 ON SEP 24, 2016

"How can we make our endeavors clear and approachable enough that we can actually contribute to the public debate at a very high level?"

In Rethinking Resettlement from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 18, Assistant Professor of Architecture at the University at Buffalo, Erkin Özay, reviews some of the social and design issues involved in rehousing and supporting Buffalo, New York's new Americans. Özay's Spring 2016 UB graduate studio explored the potential for temporary and long-term housing for newly arrived refugees and immigrants, as well as the role of supporting institutions, community assets, and reimagining the existing housing stock. Özay's project investigates "compassionate urbanism." He is interested in how groups of limited means--new and existing residents--support each other through careful intersections.
