The Future of Sustainable Housing in Cambodia exhibition.

An update from Cambodia!

I am currently working on the preparation for The Future of Sustainable Housing in Cambodia exhibition which will be held at Meta House Gallery in Phnom Penh from 17 to 23rd May.  The exhibition will showcase low cost, flood resistant, sustainable housing designs that aim to shape the future of housing in Cambodia. The event will showcase architects work from around the globe focused on creating a more sustainable future for Cambodia’s poor. The winning and short listed designs are from the recent International Design competition which Building Trust International hosted alongside Habitat for Humanity, Karuna Cambodia and the Cambodian Society of Architects.

If you are in Phnom Penh during the time of the exhibition please do pop along to check out the fantastic designs on display. Alongside the designs there will also be scale models of some of the projects. We are currently working alongside students from local Cambodian Universities including the Royal University of Fine Arts to produce the models. It is fantastic to have the support of the local students some of whom actually entered the Cambodian Housing competition!

I look forward to updating next week with photos from the exhibition which has been kindly sponsored by Hongkong Land one of Asia’s leading property investment, management and development groups.

Many thanks for reading!
