Quality Homes + Density

Thursday 25 June 2020 - 17:30 to 18:30

How we design our cities today will save lives tomorrow

Covid-19 has focused people's life on their homes. Some people have found their homes are not fit for purpose. In some cases the way people live has directly contributed to increased rates of infection.

In this IdeasSPACE we want to explore how we might design our homes in the future taking on board lessons learned in recent months:

  • What does a high quality home look like?
  • Is Covid changing our perception of what good homes look like in terms of typologies and resulting densities ?
  • And the final question we will explore is how can we deliver high quality homes for all?
