Vancouver artist Germaine Koh contributes to the current housing discourse through her exploration of small-scale dwellings and “social sculptures” in her solo exhibition Home Made Home. An advocate of creative space design, accessibility, sustainability, and self-sufficiency, Koh’s compact structures probe many of the complex housing issues relevant to the Lower Mainland.
