Housing the Human, a collaboration between five European organizations and institutions, took place on October 18th and 19th at Radialsystem in Berlin. The two-day festival showcased five selected prototypes by participating architects, designers and industry professionals—Certain Measures, Mae-Ling Lokko, Simone C Niquille/Technoflesh, Lucia Tahan and Dasha Tsapenko—which addressed the future of human living, shared resources and collective spaces. These final prototypes consisted of interactive room-spanning installations, films and performances. The participants combined research and design to explore the possibilities of living and social coexistence inherent within communal space and shared resources.
