The Black House project is a six-year research residency and interdisciplinary collaborative between Jessica Varner and David Baker. The project’s goal is to explore issues of making in a time of crisis, the role of materials in a broken industrial production system, rural life, and the environment. Each season, the research team is engaged in a theme that relates to the project’s theme. This year, the theme is “Building from the Ashes.”
In August 2018, the National House Project was incorporated into a charity. The charity provides expertise and support to local authorities, including councils and schools, to help young people transition to independent living. House Project aims to achieve this by developing sustainable and outcome-focused peer-support services that enable young people to become independent. The aim is to build a community of trust, which is essential for the young people involved. It also helps them build a positive self-esteem, learn how to manage money and create meaningful relationships.
The Alex House Project seeks to create a world where young parents with low incomes can access comprehensive support services for a successful transition from childhood to adulthood. Its services range from parenting training to accessing higher education and entering the workforce. In addition, the organization also provides training for educators. The PBLWorks website includes a video library of successful projects. It also features a range of PBL training courses, workshops, and services.
The show will follow three different projects in the South Atlanta neighborhood. The first project involves renovating an old Dutch Colonial. The second project focuses on a worn-out Victorian built in 1894. The Victorian was one of the first homes erected in a newly developed subdivision. It was owned by Luther Price. The two homeowners remodeled the home so it could be used as a homeschool for their children. The West Roxbury Victorian, on the other hand, received a second chance.
In addition to being a community service, the Green House Project’s staff is divided into four distinct roles. The Shahbaz, for example, is a versatile worker whose job duties include personal care and housekeeping. His name comes from the Persian word for the falcon of the sultan. The Guide supervises the Shahbaz, while the Sage is an elder who advises the work teams. This project is a great opportunity for anyone with a disability to remain a member of their communities.
After the Second World War, Japan’s population began to grow at a record pace. There was a widespread rural exodus, and the number of houses in many cities decreased. During the summer of 1948, the government made a law preventing the increase of rental prices. This effectively ended the economic benefits of housing investment. However, rents continued to depress until the 1980s. The debate eventually led to the current rental law. A major homelessness crisis hit the country in the winter of 1953-4. From that time, necessary laws were gradually mobilized and high levels of construction were achieved. In the 1960s, social landlords were also an important source of construction expertise and had links with local and national bodies.
