On the occasion of the exhibition Rooms the architects of Dogma give a lecture on 2 April in deSingel (Antwerp) about the history of the minimum dwelling. 

In 1932, Czech critic Karel Teige proposed a concept of minimum dwelling in which every person would have a private room, but all the other domestic functions would be communal. Taking Teige’s idea of minimum dwelling as a starting point, Dogma revisited examples of minimum dwelling, from the medieval monk’s cell to the nineteenth-century American residential hotel, and from the Soviet Dom-Kommuna (communal apartments) to contemporary collective developments. In the lecture, Dogma will discuss the premises and consequences of this project.

Dogma - Rooms
The exhibition Rooms explores the domestic space via its simplest manifestation: a room. Taking this as a starting point, Dogma presents the results of two distinct lines of enquiry: The Room of One’s Own, which focuses on the history and function of the private room, and Loveless, which charts the evolution of the ‘minimum dwelling’.
