The Unobtainable Dream
This project began with the aim of highlighting the struggles of buying a home and how to overcome them. Now I wonder, should the solution be that it is time to move on from the idea of home-owning? It was an idea that only came about after the war when house prices were more in line with the cost of living, inflation today has put that out of perspective. People are travelling more often, not just for work but also socially. Home-owning was a generational ideal that has now passed. It’s time to embrace becoming generation rent.
