At Home in Britain: Designing the House of Tomorrow

Exhibition Dates: 
May. 18, 2016 to Aug. 29, 2016
At Home in Britain re-examines how we live and speculates on the future of housing in Britain. Taking the cottage, the terraced house and the flat as a starting point and using RIBA Collections as stimulus, six newly commissioned works from contemporary architecture practices Jamie Fobert Architects, Mae, Maison Edouard François, Mecanoo, Studio Weave and vPPR transform these three familiar housing types to reflect the way we live and work in the 21st century.
A BBC and RIBA partnership
The season will be accompanied by a three-part BBC4 television series, presented by Dan Cruickshank, looking at the history of the cottage, terrace and flat.
