Open Call: Re-materializing Housing Workshop 2020

The Norman Foster Foundation is selecting ten students to be awarded a scholarship for the first edition of the Norman Foster Foundation Re-materializing Housing Workshop, supported by the LafargeHolcim Foundation.

How can we best combine the knowledge learnt from vernacular architecture techniques with the developments of new technologies to design affordable housing solutions?

The Re-materializing Housing Workshop 2020 will take place in Madrid, Spain, from 23 – 27 March 2020. As usual, the Workshop will gather a team of ten scholars, drawn from diverse backgrounds including architecture, arts and humanities, sustainability, technology and materials. The selected scholars will explore the future possibilities of Housing, in relation with affordability and the use of innovative techniques, material experimentation and sustainable design.

Each grant will cover all transportation, accommodation and incurred costs related to the workshop in Madrid. Scholars will be invited to engage with an interdisciplinary Academic Body composed of researchers, industry practitioners and academicians.
