The Metropolitan Architecture Student Society (MASS) at The Cass is hosting a half-day symposium to explore how students and practitioners are approaching the future of housing in the UK. The programme of crits and talks will seek to investigate existing housing models and develop a series of diverse approaches to the challenges of our current context, such as building at density, retaining the public realm, and making truly mixed and affordable developments within the city. The emerging research will be displayed in an exhibition on the day and later collated into a research publication.
1pm - 6pm: Megacrit
Four MArch units from four different architecture schools will present the housing research they have been developing, to highly relevant guest critics Kate Macintosh, Alison Brooks, Akil Scafe-Smith (Public Practice) and Rae Whittow-Williams (GLA) amongst others.
6.30pm - 8pm: Lecture
David Levitt and Jo McCafferty (Levitt Bernstein) will be giving a lecture to discuss the new edition of the Housing Design Handbook, which will be chaired by Alex Ely (Mae).
8pm - late
Join us for drinks after the lecture to carry on the conversation!
Free admission. Everyone is welcome to join at any part of the day.
