The regular conference was organised by nonconform.
The contents and results of the course were presented during the four bus tours to visit some best-practice projects in the region. After the historical outline and exploration of individual needs, future thoughts on the single-family house were also presented, and our résumé from the experiences of two interdisciplinary courses on this emotionally debated topic was shared. At the individual excursion destinations, the challenges and strategies in dealing with vacancies in single-family houses were demonstrated with examples.
We thank you for the invitation and are pleased to have been part of the 8th Vacancy Conference.
