UTAS Student Exhibition | Speculate: Housing Futures

Brickworks Design Studio, 7-9 Franklin Wharf, Hobart

Housing has become a key issue in Australia, with housing availability and affordability becoming increasingly challenging. SPECULATE: Housing Futures presents ideas developed by students from the School of Architecture & Design at the University of Tasmania for multi-residential housing in Hobart to provide more diverse housing typologies closer to the city and services. These speculative ideas demonstrate how existing under-utilised sites could be transformed to provide new opportunities for urban living, transforming the city into a vibrant and socially, economically and ecologically sustainable environment.

Join us for the exhibition launch and hear from students and University of Tasmania Senior Architecture and Design Lecturer Dr. Helen Norrie.

When/Time: Thursday 2 November 2023, 5:30 pm for a 6 pm start.
