A custom designed house is a spatial form/embodiment of a ‘living’ (habitual practices, ambitions and desires). Beyond the apparent styles and materials, one can trace the crossings of the occupant’s characteristics, the designer’s (spatial) interpretations, and the site’s material and environmental conditions and challenges. 010 HOUSE exhibits a selection of house designs by Winnipeg-based design practices. Through drawings, photographs and models the exhibition will feature how these practices have nuanced the client/family’s specific way of living, and their often demanding needs and desires, in their HOUSE design. The exhibition is also intended to provoke a series of discussions/reflections on HOUSE designs in Winnipeg and our living conditions today.
