What’s the quality of public, private and collective space in polish housing estates? Does it help to create a social life and build the network of relationships between
the inhabitants? What happens between the buildings? The exhibition “Home.Housing.Dwelling” is a result of collaborative research of architects and sociologists
on the issue of common polish housing estates. Field for studies and subject of research are six different housing areas, focusing on the topic of everyday life.
The exhibition shows among others: books and magazines related with the issue of quality of housing and public space, results of studies of Polish constitution and selected acts of law, which describe and are responsible for the quality of urbanism in Poland. And above all, results of research (including typology and density studies, photographs, movies, interviews with inhabitants) on six different housing estates in Gdynia and Poznań, which are part of current urban fabric in the city and represent three different time periods: housing estates from the 30’s, pre-fabricated housing units from 70’s and contemporary housing neighborhoods realized by private developers.
