The Castle

The Castle

Micro-Housing Enshrined in the United Nations Covenants is the right for everyone to have access to `adequate housing'. Having a place to call one's home - or indeed one's castle - is a critical link to resources such as education, employment and healthcare. If you do not have an address or a roof over your head you can also lose other human needs such as security, pride and self-confidence.

The Castle is a project being undertaken by Youth Futures in partnership with University of Tasmania (UTas) - School of Architecture. The Castle intends to provide a realistic and affordable alternative to mainstream housing. At the same time we want to challenge the trend of homes becoming larger and larger. Is it possible that size is one of the reasons that housing in Australia is more unaffordable than ever before?
