Description

Home / Away: Five British Architects Build Housing in Europe was the British Pavilion exhibition for the 2008 Venice Architecture Biennale. The exhibition was curated by award-winning architecture critic Ellis Woodman and featured the work of five British architecture practices: de Rijke Marsh Morgan, Maccreanor Lavington, Sergison Bates, Tony Fretton and Witherford Watson Mann.

A century ago, the UK was at the forefront of thinking about the question of housing. The garden city movement promoted by urban reformers like Ebenezer Howard and planners Raymond Unwin and Barry Parker proved influential across Europe and beyond. Home / Away addresses this legacy with the work of five architects who are designing housing in the testing conditions of the contemporary UK market, and by contrasting their experience in the UK with that of building housing in another European country.

The catalogue to accompany the exhibition features each practices exhibited projects as well as a history of the development of housing in Britain from 1870 to the present day, researched and written by Emily Greeves. The catalogue was designed by Laurent Benner and Jon Hares.
