The World House Project is a multi-year, collaborative initiative led by the Institute without Boundaries that will explore the evolution of shelter and plan for the next generation of holistic housing design. The project will build on the research concepts of IwB’s inaugural project, Massive Change, using the same method of interdisciplinary design innovation.
The challenge: to design a sustaining, universal and healthy human dwelling. That challenge is different depending on where you are, for example in developing countries, over a billion people live in urban slums or in the streets without shelter. By the year 2030, three billion people in the developing world will need housing. That’s 96,150 housing units per day.
