Brexit, London housing and building diverse communities

Video: the key issues facing architecture in 2016

Published 1 July 2016

In the headline debate for the London Festival of Architecture, our panellists and audience discuss how architecture can be used to bring people together at a time when Britain’s relationship to Europe and the rest of the world is the subject of intense discussion.

  • Chaired by Razia Iqbal of the BBC, the audience put their questions to architects Asif Khan and Amanda Levete, Evening Standard editor Sarah Sands, and David Twohig of the Battersea Power Station Development Company.

    They discussed a broad selection of issues ranging from Brexit, the affordability of London housing, and the importance of council estates in creating diverse communities, to the role of architecture and the creative industries in resolving the divisions in British society today.
