URBAN HOUSING – Positions and Prospects
Housing requirements and conditions are changing. Associated with this is the current debate about such subjects as new construction or urban consolidation and the issues of affordable living spaces and new living standards. Politics and the housing industry, as well as architects and planners, face numerous challenges in these areas.
International experts will be convening at the bautec congress ‘URBAN HOUSING | Positions and Prospects’ on 20 February 2020. They will be presenting exemplary projects and individual housing concepts as well as discussing the prospects for urban housing.
