Lisbon's Housing Crisis Poster

About

This is a poster commenting on the absolute void of regulation on 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 crest was used but the traditional crows were 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.
