Together with the Sociology Department of Liverpool University and the Architecture Department of Liverpool John Moores University, Architecture_MPS organised this two day interdisciplinary conference on the global theme of affordable housing provision. It formed part of a broader program of international events, Housing – Critical Futures.
The provision of adequate housing is one of the most important political issues today. Against a background of disparate policy interventions, resistances and conflicting aspirations, the Housing – A Critical Perspective conference sought to bring together disparate voices: architects, planners, developers, sociologists, artists, housing associations, community representatives and policy makers. Reflecting the belief that housing and its social implications are not discipline-specific concerns the conference invited cross-disciplinary and creative thinking from those engaging in research and practice from both inside and outside academia.
