Conceived as a response to the country’s protracted housing crisis, the exhibition is an architectural activist campaign for non-alienated housing. The Canada Pavilion will serve as Not for Sale!’s campaign headquarters, where an expansive collaboration with activists, advocates, and architects from across Canada will present their demands. The campaign seeks to energise Canadians to join the call for safe, equitable, and affordable housing.
