Competition: five SQM The Quantified Home books to be won

Competition: Dezeen has teamed up with Lars Müller Publishers to give readers a chance to win one of five books presenting curator Joseph Grima's research into changing ideas of "home".

Congratulations to the winners! Adriana Zielinska from the UK, Jameson Kergozou de la Boessiere from Poland, Lena Okuneva from Ukraine, Laure-anne Superchi from France and Luuk van den Elzen from the Netherlands all won a copy of SQM: The Quantified Home.

SQM - The Quantified Home

SQM: The Quantified Home was originally published to accompany an exhibition of the same name that Grima and his studio Space Caviar curated at last year's Biennale Interieur event.

Space Caviar took over an abandoned school in Kortrijk, Belgium, and used the building's architectural elements to present the findings of its research into how perceptions of home have changed over time.

SQM - The Quantified Home

Like the exhibition, the publication examines how financial, environmental, technological, and geopolitical forces affect the way we live.

SQM - The Quantified Home

Data is presented as graphs and relevant architectural projects are illustrated as isometric drawings.

SQM - The Quantified Home

Dezeen columnists that have contributed original essays for the book include Justin McGuirk, who talks about the socialist dream of London's doomed Robin Hood Gardens housing complex; Sam Jacob, who writes about the UK capital's current trend for luxury basement extensions; and Dan Hill, who examines the commodification of services in Helsinki.

SQM - The Quantified Home

Other case studies include Osama bin Laden's compound and the success of home rental website Airbnb.

The paperback book is available from the Lars Müller website in a range of cover styles, all made out of wallpaper rolls from different periods and countries.
