Among our talented staff here at Crawford Architects this month we are congratulating our Graduate Architect, Lisa Ho on receiving the Lisa Ettridge Memorial Prize at UNSW recently.
The prize is awarded to an outstanding project or equivalent stage design course that best addresses architecture’s contribution to socially disadvantaged communities:
Project title: For the Particularities of Living
Question: How do we move away from the monotonous model of housing to diverse models that consider the particularities of living situations?
Statement: While standardised models of housing are continuing, one size does not fit all when it comes to living in today’s population of diverse cultures, household structures and living situations. Heterogenous design is encouraged as a solution where a series of interviews with unique households becomes the key driver in the proposal of personalised housing layouts that cater to particular living situations.
Based in Marrickville, an envisioned cooperative housing development consisting of individualised residential units and diverse on site buildings, amenities and spaces offer needed heterogeneity on a micro and macro scale to successfully provide for all particularities of living situations.
The work is also on display at the Venice Architecture Biennale satellite exhibition:
Congratulations Lisa from all at Crawford Architects!
