London Build panel on the housing crisis alongside architects;

Brian Waters- president ACA (Chair)
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.
We're honoured to have been invited to be part of the third Archifutures volumes - a "field guide to the future of architecture".
Archifutures say: "The collection maps contemporary architectural practice and urban planning, presented through the words and ideas of some of its key players and change-makers. From institutions, activists, thinkers, curators and architects to urban bloggers, polemicists, critics and publishers, these are the people shaping tomorrow’s architecture and cities – and thereby helping to shape our societies of the future as well."
