What happens when you put 50+ volunteer architects, planners and artists in the heritage Carnegie Gallery, for one day, and challenge them to come up with designs for starter homes for millenials? See the amazing results of 4 teams designing for 4 different Hamilton sites – all underused land right in our community, including:

  • Eastgate Mall transformed into a green walkable community full of new housing;
  • An east-end Laneway become flexible homes for families;
  • An LRT Corridor site turned int inter-generational housing of many configuration:
  • A vacan rural Flamborough site re-envisioned as self-contained, co-operative housing, with shared services.

The Missing Middle Housing program is organized by the Hamilton Burlington Society of Architects & the Carnegie Gallery TBA. The architectural design charrette occurred at the end of January. Teams’ finalized formal plans are the subject of the exhibition, plus related artwork from participating artists.
