Podcast: the upsides of good housing

Published 12 June 2015

In this event, a range of speakers examine the characteristics of places where people enjoy living and communities thrive, and discuss whether these can be applied in the future.

  • When housing works well and we create places where people enjoy living, what are the positives for them and for society? With a panel consisting of politicians, architects and academics, the discussion shies away from abstract theory, in favour of concrete models taken from real life experience.

    Speakers include:

    Richard Blakeway – Deputy Mayor for Housing, Land and Property, Greater London Authority
    Rachel Fisher – Head of Policy, National Housing Federation
    Wayne Hemingway – Founder, Hemingway Design
    Dickon Robinson – Chairman, Living Architecture
    Charles Seaford – Head of Wellbeing, New Economics Foundation
    Daisy Froud (chair) – Teaching Fellow, The Bartlett
