The Centre for Architecture and Metropolitan Planning (CAMP) presents Prague Tomorrow? Houses and Apartments, an exhibition exploring the future of the city.
Where there is no housing, there is no city. Houses and apartments are the basic fabric of human settlements – as are streets, squares, shops, offices, factories or underground pipelines. Every healthy and growing city requires sufficient housing for all existing as well as new residents. Ideally in densely populated and well-connected developments that save both the environment and public budgets.
The Houses and Apartments exhibition in the Prague Tomorrow? series describes the reasons why the Czech capital is still far from an ideal housing situation. At the same time, however, it also shows the paths that lead to a significant improvement in the supply of quality and affordable housing for current and future residents of Prague.
The audiovisual layer of the exhibition consists of three parts. The first explains who builds apartments in the capital and how, while the second presents the diverse face of contemporary housing: the photographic essay “Houses, Apartments, People” invites visitors to peek into various types of Prague households – from homeless dormitories to luxury loft residences in the city center. The third part consists of a sound montage composed of a wide range of opinions that resonate through the media on the topic of housing development.
