‘Living Space‘, as regards our everyday life’s, has always been an elementary question and a very basic human need. Since we transformed from hunter- gatherers to permanently settled societies, it’s a subject everyone has to deal with. Wether some who're barley interested in anything but a roof over their heads and practical use, others do care on an extensive and large scale. However, almost always living is linked to social position and a large part of the population isn’t fortunate enough to follow the ‘cherry- picking’ principle.
How do we want to live in the future and what are we willing to afford? 57% of german citizens live for rent and the average german residential building costs 242.000 €. Living space is reaching absurd high points and growing numbers of people want to live in the bigger cities‘ spaces.
This ongoing project wants to shed light on people’s living situation in Germany and also follows phenomenons such as urbanization, rural depopulation and steadily growing demands for alternatives to usual housing options.
