Sweden has a housing crisis and needs to build 700,000 residences by 2025. In order to do this prices have to decrease so cheaper housing can be built. The Swedish Association of Public Housing Companies came up with a solution: a few houses they call “Kombohus” that can be built at 25% lower cost.
Snask created “From Words to Housing” that features an interactive paper city. The city was photographed with a street-view camera and programmed so visitors to their website could virtually walk around it. Real quotes about the housing situation were collected from Swedes on social media and presented in the city. Visitors could make their own voices heard, sharing their point of view, and together put pressure the authorities for cheaper housing.
