In the academic year 2009-2010 I was involved in setting up a course in Housing Design for the Tampere University of Technology architecture students. The dynamic leader of the course was professor Markku Hedman. The students looked at housing from various extraordinary perspectives each approaching the design task from his or her own, well-defined ideology. The result was a set of fresh and energising suggestions for alternative housing. I sincerely recommend that you give ten minutes of your time and expand your horizons on housing. The website is visually very attractive!
PS: The original designs are exhibited at the Kuopio Housing Fair.
