Le Corbusier expert joins our Future Cities Forum - 13th June 2017


Professor Flora Samuel will be speaking at our June forum about her role in the new initiative - the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE) which will carry out research into the UK's housing system. Flora leads on Humanities in the CaCHE Consortium which is led by the University of Glasgow and funded primarily by the ESRC, AHRC and Joseph Rowntree Foundation. The programme will seek to influence future housing policy at all levels.

Flora Samuel is Professor of Architecture in the Built Environment at the new University of Reading School of Architecture and former Head of the University of Sheffield School of Architecture.

She has received over £500K of research funding to study the ways in which architects evidence and communicate the value of what they do. She has now turned her attention to raising the profile of research in the Royal Institute of British Architects where she is an elected national councillor and Chair of the Research and Innovation Group.
