The housing reform collective Architects Against Housing Alienation (AAHA) will represent Canada at the 2023 Venice Architecture Biennale. Having been selected by the Canada Council for the Arts, AAHA will use the event to launch an architectural activity campaign for safe, healthy, affordable housing, titled “Not for Sale!”

The newly-formed collective was created specifically for the purposes of the Biennale bid, composed of architects, designers, educators, and historians, with support from collaborators and contributors with backgrounds in affordable housing, indigenous communities, education, and design. The aim of the group is to “instigate an architectural movement and create socially, ecologically, and creatively empowering housing for all.”
