Housing production is usually based on the belief of predictability, but this approach is inconsistent with the fact that the future cannot be predicted. Residential design and construction must therefore adopt more flexible and adaptable principles, where the impossibility of making predictions is taken into account. Adaptable housing can help to meet the forthcoming and increasingly diverse housing needs, providing housing alternatives in a sustainable way. Ten visions presented in this publication introduce a wide range of means, methods and scales to achieve adaptability and flexibility in housing construction. The publication consists of ten design assignments created during an advanced housing design course at Tampere University of Technology in spring 2013. The publication presents not only a wide range of means to achieve flexibility in housing construction, but also their direct connection with the practice. The publication is part of a study concerning user-centric spaces in the Indoor Environment Program of RYM Oy.
