FLEX Introductory Presentation

Not replacing existing communities and housing stock…

Getting older: ageing is a lifelong process…

And although most people associate getting older with decrepitude, there are bonuses…

Such as a more profound appreciation of the good things in life, and Illich considers conviviality a basic right…

Flexibility: something that surprises and delights in its potential to adapt…

Home: not necessarily a place, in this case, a case…

Of course this project is engaging with a range of existing dwellings – this is one image of mixed housing, in North Yorkshire…

But so is this scene of Sheffield, with an even starker representation of the challenges of adapting existing stock to be flexible and convivial.
