TOTAL HOUSING Book Launch
TOTAL HOUSING Book Launch at Storefront for Art and Architecture Wednesday, September 29th, 7pm
Storefront, in collaboration with Actar and Architizer, are pleased to invite you to the US Release of TOTAL HOUSING, an Actar book, and the pre-launch of the Total Housing Competition.
The event will take place in the form of a conversation about the book and the basis for the upcoming Total Housing Competition, which will be officially launched on October 7th. The conversation will bring together a selection of the Total Housing Competition jury with diverse perspectives on housing to discuss the guidelines and principles for evaluating housing projects in different contexts. The jury’s commentary will serve as the basis for the competition brief.
The conversation, guided by Eva Franch will include Mark Kushner (Founding Partner, HWKN, Founder, Architizer), Elisa Ours (Vice President of Planning & Design Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group), Cassim Shepard (Project Director, Urban Omnibus), Lyn Rice (Founding Partner, Lyn Rice Archtitects) and Joel Sanders (Founding Partner, Joel Sanders Architects).
ABOUT THE BOOK:
A new publication from Actar, TOTAL HOUSING is conceived as evidence supporting the qualities of dense, urban living. The title refers to the need to understand that social, environmental, and economic factors affect form, and that living space is a base for our increasingly complex and varied societies.

Copies will be for sale during the event
ABOUT THE COMPETITION:
A collaborative venture between Storefront, Actar and Architizer, the Total Housing Competition invites architects, design offices, freelancers and students from around the world to submit their built or speculative work. The Total Housing Competition is an opportunity to celebrate exceptional residential projects.
The Total Housing Competition intends to go beyond traditional editorial and curatorial practices, mining Architizer as a platform, for residential projects from emerging designers that escaped Actar’s editorial radar or Storefront’s curatorial spectrum.
The competition will be officially launched online on Architizer October 7th.
