The Game of (Freo) Life: big thinking about small housing

Research output: Non-traditional research outputRecorded/rendered creative work

Abstract

The exhibition involved the design and exhibition of a large gameboard that the community could use to propose alternative designs for smaller housing in existing suburban areas. The model made everything moveable by using a magnetic system. It included buildings/dwellings, trees, vehciles, private outdoor sreas, garden spaces and other 'tiles' which were designed around a 2.5cm x 2.5cm modular grid (5m x 5m at 1:200 scale). Over 40 designs were recorded and documented to illustrate what the community thought about the possibilities for accommodating more diverse housing in existing suburbs. The exhibition was part of a larger industry partnership research project (Fremantle Housing Diversity & The Freo Alternative) with the City of Fremantle to accommodate greater housing diversity in the city in the future in response to community need.
