Lisbon Housing Crisis

illustration, poster
studio project

This is a poster commenting on the absolute void of regulation of the housing market in Lisbon. The growth of Airbnb-like short term rentals in recent years and the tourism surge are driving rents up to ridiculous values while also making long-term renting throughout the city nearby impossible to find. The city’s centuries-old crest is subverted, with the traditional crows being replaced by the Airbnb logo. Continuing down this road, tourists will be visiting Lisbon to see other tourists, as no local will be able to afford living in the city.
