The theme of “House, Cluster, Matrix” addressed the range of rural and urban housing forms
Public housing is among the most pressing matters of our time. The design and the necessity of housing are rapidly changing as our working habits, transportation modes, industries, and social and family values are changing. It is time to rethink the core functions of living and its diversity and differences across communities and regions. The movement from house to housing raises increasingly complex questions about the morphology and arrangement of social and spatial organization. In thinking about settlement patterns, the process also indicates shifting scales, typological complexity, and network systems. The theme of “House, Cluster, Matrix” addressed the range of rural and urban housing forms through the dynamic practices of Steiger and Graber from Luzern (Switzerland) with Saif Ul Haque, WOHA Architects from Singapore, and special engagements with Nahas Khalil and Kazi Khaleed Ashraf, Dhaka, along with lectures by Jalal Ahmad and Marina Tabassum.
