There is a huge need for housing in London but something isn't working; annual targets are missed and it seems that existing methods just can't deliver. However new approaches are emerging focused on ‘grassroots’ developments where the community is put first through a combination of consultation, shared spaces and good quality design that can achieve positive density.
These innovations in housing delivery will be presented by Bell Philips, Archio and pH+ as part of a major public forum for the London Festival of Architecture, tackling issues that are relevant for the profession and the general public. The practices will present and discuss a series of community-led and mixed-use developments that make the most of available space within the capital for Londoners as they live and work.
The need for well designed homes in the capital has never been greater and it’s time to turn to new voices in the industry and hear what the future of housing will be how these new models for housing delivery can work.
