‘My home is your home’ is a collaborative project between public
works and Balin house projects (at 22 Balin
House - Tabard Garden Estate),within a
trans-dicisplinary context of art, architecture, history and
The project started in 2013 and explores the public role of the
home through the intimate act of hosting, the home as a place of
cultural production and dissemination and the home owner as an
active citizen. Public works worked as architects to re-design and
deliver the home as a public facing platform and as curators in
programming the space thereafter.
The events, workshops and emerging critical discussion have come
together as a book 'My Home is Your Home' published in 2016. with
current policies towards the destruction of social housing, this
book asks the question: Can a home negotiate the intimacy of
domestic life yet be a civic/cultural asset where the home owner
becomes an active agent?
