Three days in which discussions will be held along with lectures by some of the world’s most renowned architects. This year, over 2,000 attendees are expected.

Future of Housing is the second day’s topic. Here, current problems that come with designing new spaces or restoring old ones will be approached, along with the always-changing human needs. Also, topics related with the research of new construction materials will be discussed. And a bonus: the possibility to build new habitats on other planets will be addressed.
