From the O-HB we have developed an open survey that aims to answer how livability and the housing sector are affected by the confinement and the Covid-19 crisis. The survey, running until June 8th, asked questions such as living conditions during the period of confinement, housing deficiencies or its paying difficulties, among others. The results of the survey will be published in the coming weeks. The survey, ‘Viviendo en confinamiento’, was carried out in collaboration with the “Agrupació Arquitectura i Sostenibilidad (AUS) – Col·legi d’Arquitectes de Catalunya (COAC)”
