Swan Housing

With the current big push on factory-made housing, what opportunities and challenges does this present the future of housing in London? How do we ensure the highest design quality in this type of housing production? How do we ensure that the product contributes positively to placemaking across London, that it responds to local context and demonstrates longevity to the community it aims to serve?

How are we employing innovative models of construction and delivery to deliver the 66,000 homes needed each year? What typologies are new construction methods producing? How do you make the economies of factory production stack up? How sustainable are these methods? How can we use intelligent systems to increase variations without adding to costs? 
 
In the advent of Brexit, what will be the impact on the construction workforce and how will this affect the future of factory built housing in the long-term? How can we learn from leading cities and implement innovation to ensure we’re building quality housing at speed and at scale. 
 
Roundtables, viewpoints and interviews, have been combined with a call out for projects to produce this piece of research into factory-made housing. A three-month programme of events taking place for the duration of the exhibition will further explore key themes, forming a core part of the NLA Housing programme.
 
The exhibition, publication and series of events will launch in October, with the exhibition open to the public from Wednesday 10 October. Further details on the events programme will be released soon!
