Talk: London Build Panel

London Build panel on the housing crisis alongside architects;

The panel covered a wide range of insights, from higher densities, challenging or upholding space-standards, innovations in housing typologies, housing for older generations, affordability, pre-fabrication, place-making and sense of community and finally building outside of London. Lots of food for thought going forwards.
