    3. 3. Slovenia’s Past Housing Challenges •By end of 1980’s housing inefficient •Home ownership based on favorable credit •Home ownership in urban areas were not affordable, over priced for most people •Rental units affordable but scarce •Cost to construct and maintenance was higher than then rental cost •Housing shortages underestimated
    4. 4. Fostering Community • This seaside structure appeals to young, small families and couples • There was an increased need for small, affordable housing for these young families • Constructed for low-income residency • The concept of a rhythmic beehive was an attempt to foster community by paralleling the drive of worker bees in the hive, but was unsuccessful • The Honeycomb Housing Complex brings together people of similar backgrounds and social and economic standing in one building, but gives them no reason to interact or form a community • The staggered elevations of the balconies is successful in creating private space between neighbors INHABITAT

    9. 9. BIG MARITIME YOUTH CENTER BJARKE INGELS GROUP: COPENHAGEN, DENMARK
    10. 10. Fostering Community •Scandinavian architecture has been one that increases its program for years •The architects continually try to combine many public places into one functional whole •The architecture focuses on form, functionality, and inspiration •The Maritime Youth House was a special challenge because it was essential that the space focused on two clients: a sailing club and a children’s center •Some important programming issues were giving the children enough safe space to play and also allowing mooring space for the boats •Another issue was the site. It was riddled with polluted topsoil which the architects ingeniously decided to build over •The architects decided to build a large elevated wooden deck over the contaminated land allowing a sprawling space for the children to play and opening underneath for the boats to moor •The gently sloping deck fosters community by allowing a great space for the children and the center supervisors to interact. •Indirectly, the space allows sailing club members to interact with the youth house as well by keeping them connected •The fascinating deck serves as the focal point of the project. It BIG is unexpected, inviting, and draws many people to come enjoy the space together.
