With the changes in social structures and working situations today, people’s needs when looking for a new home are also changing: Innovative housing has to be capable of great flexibility in the way it is used in order to provide suitable homes for the broad diversity of different contemporary lifestyles.

In cooperation with 9 property developers, all of whom are Az W ’xlargepartners’, selected projects are to be exhibited and discussed in a two day presentation entitled ’the best of wohnbau’ (housing development). The 18 architecture projects on show will bring the visitors that bit closer to being able to find their own idea of a dream home.
