Housing – A Critical Perspective. 08-09 April 2015.

Speakers included:

Stephen Hodder MBE. President, Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA)

David Waterhouse. Head of Strategic Development, Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (Cabe)

Ann O’Byrne. Deputy Mayor of Liverpool. Liverpool City Council.

 

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.

Theme:

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.
