The world’s first 3D-printed neighbourhood
A giant 3D printer is creating new homes in rural Mexico. Each takes 24 hours and lets local families upgrade from a shack to a two-bedroom house. Could this be part of the global housing solution?
Powerhouse - a house which is 100% off-grid
A solar powered, ready-to-move-in, eco-friendly, smart home in India. Pre-fitted with electrical and plumbing systems that can be controlled remotely. For £18,000, buyers can have clean energy for their home and e-vehicle, free for life.
Products that could be used in small sites locally for rapid housing development. Quality housing, manufactured offsite to minimise on site disruption, whilst keeping the price well below the market average.
The 6th Annual Oxford Business and Poverty Conference on Housing - Oxford
@75-81 High Street Historic South School, Examination School Oxford OX1 4BG
The 6th Annual Oxford Business and Poverty Conference will focus on housing. Day 1 of our conference will feature a diverse range of speakers addressing creative ways to meet the housing needs of low and moderate-income people - especially through mutuals and having residents and employees or employee-owners participate in various components of governance in housing organisations and companies.
Day 2 of the conference will focus on a series of business proposals during which social enterprises will present their plans to investors and others who want to learn more. These proposals will hopefully lead to funding for the companies that want to build housing in Oxford, other parts of the UK, India and Zimbabwe.
