Government and housing in a time of crisis.

Studio 12 Tutor Luis Diaz will be presenting a research paper on housing and education at the Architecture Media Politics Society (AMPS) conference at Liverpool John Moores University, 8-9 September 2016. In addition, two recent graduates, Alfie Peacock and Nick Woodward will be presenting papers in a student stream. All the work is based on the housing studio run in 2015-16 and is contributing to a current research project on the history of arrival sequences in British housing estates. The work re-evaluates the spaces that lead into and connect housing estates to their neighbourhoods and is intended to raise awareness about the role of design in successful housing schemes. The papers will be published later this year.
