»House Housing« was an exhibition that took place parallel to the Venice Architecture Biennial in 2014. During my internship at MTWTF, I worked on the exhibition concept and the exhibition set-up. The exhibition is part of a multi-year research project led by the Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture at Columbia University. The project is devoted to the relationship between architecture and real estate trade and its development, particularly in the field of housing construction in the USA.
The exhibition took place in a residential house in Venice, where 19 historical episodes from the history of architecture and real estate market were presented. The episodes show how history has shaped today's situation of the American market. The content is brought to the visitor in different media, which are from different parts of the past, just like the shown episodes. The objects are distributed in the apartment in a natural way, so that you feel as if you were in the apartment of the person who has meticulously done the entire research and documented it.
