Protohome addresses issues of housing crisis, homelessness and participation in the built environment. Built on site at BALTIC, in collaboration with members of Crisis, the national charity for single homelessness. It is a self-built pavilion which displays provocations for more participatory forms of housing. It presents Harper Perry's Self Build Guild and documentation of the first iteration of Protohome in the Ouseburn Valley, Newcastle. The pavilion invites the visitor to learn more about the state of housing today and the potentials for a radical rethink of how housing is produced. Following the exhibition the structure will be relocated and extended to form a new community space at the Holy Biscuit in Shieldfield, Newcastle.
