Royal College of Art on future housing

We were delighted to welcome the Royal College of Art to our 'Intelligent Cities' forum at White City Place, London this month.

Leader of the RCA's new City Design MA, Dr Tarsha Finney, joined the Managing Director of Bexley Co, Huw Lewis, and WYG Planning Director, Anne Clements to discuss why we need new approaches to designing homes at greater density.The panellists also talked about attracting inward investment and how to create' place' in new housing projects across the UK.

‘The great re-organisations of London' Tarsha said,' in the Victorian era were all about social reform, clearing away slums, delivering housing for the “worthy poor”, and this has left a high quality housing legacy that we can see and appreciate now as at the Boundary Estate and Arnold Circus in Bethnal Green.
