What does it mean to live in the city without a place you can call your own? What role can architects have in addressing homelessness? And how can cities become a better home for all? The documentary film What It Takes to Make a Home follows a conversation between architects Michael Maltzan (Los Angeles) and Alexander Hagner (Vienna), who have been grappling with these questions over many years and through various projects.
The screening of What It Takes to Make a Home will be followed by a live panel with Juha Kaakinen and CCA Director Giovanna Borasi, where they will discuss international approaches to urban homelessness and the role of the architect.
