It will be now exhibited at Universidad Católica December 2022 - March 2023 (Casona Lo Contador - Patio de los Naranjos).

The research produced in the last six years by How do we Live? has prompted awareness and critical thinking towards housing design, looking at the current housing production in different metropolitan context.

Its future outcome is the launching of a MSc. programme on Global Housing Design at the Liverpool Architecture School in collaboration with Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.

With the goal of expanding our research, we have invited the following panelists from Universidad Católica and University of Liverpool to present their investigations on housing in the global South.We will discuss issues about modernist inheritance, self-construction, demolition, segregation, and spatial governance looking at case studies in South America, West and South Africa and the Middle East.
