Join us to discuss how the concept of home and domesticity is becoming disconnected from the traditional understanding of a house. Webster’s Dictionary defines the home as a place in which one’s domestic affections are centred. This interpretation avoids any reference to the materiality of architecture or location. Thus, home is an ideological construct spurring from emotionally charged experiences. But what happens when the spaces where people live are temporary, ephemeral and disconnected from the traditional architectural understanding of a house? At the end of 2015, there were 65.3 million displaced people in the world, rising to more than 100 million if those who are living in conditions allowing them to be categorised as homeless are included. For many a permanent home is a dream or a luxury, and this is changing the vision of what home is.
