The book Dwelling on the Future by StudioDA presents designs that critically examine the possibilities in the existing market, and attempts are also made to realise dignified homes for people who are categorically out of the picture in the given market. The professional context of all those involved, in every design process of the presented housing projects, is documented in the book in the form of interviews. Six of the twelve projects in the book are shown in the exhibition. At tables in the exhibition the interviews can be read by the visitor. Clients, project developers and constructors talk about who they are and what their role was in the development of the design.
