Global housing crisis – high living costs

Lack of proper housing has been one of the biggest problems that the world has faced overall. Whether it is the areas that are ridden with natural disasters or the most developed ones. This problem has infected most of the countries. And the severity of this problem is ranging across the world.

There are various reasons why the housing crisis exists around the world. But what is common in all is the fact that they’re unaffordable. The basic requirement of a shelter is often unaffordable to millions across the world. People stay either in small temporary houses or on the streets where they are provided with nothing. This has been observed in the best of the cities to the developing ones.

There will be an eventual rise in this issue as is it estimated that a huge population is going to migrate towards these cities by the year 2050.

Brief: This challenge aims to create an affordable housing design that provides people with a basic livable facility for people.
One of the ways to mitigate this problem is only possible by creating solutions that are made in consideration of the poor. Who wants a shelter but simply cannot afford it.

The design is aimed to provide the basic spaces that are needed for survival in the city. Along with other necessary spaces that are accommodated in the affordable price range.

Spaces are meant to be affordable and provide the basic necessity of a house to a large number of people; thus trying to mitigate the problem by a certain percentage.
