This year's theme of #cafx19 is CHANGING IDEALS 💡

We will investige how ideals of housing and urban development have changed radically over the past 100 years. We wish to draw new lines in between Denmark and abroad, past and future, old and new neighbourhoods, people and places, individual and community.
