This lunchtime talk will look at how movable, temporary housing works in practice. How easy is it to disassemble modular housing units, transport them to a new location and reassemble? We’ll be exploring examples where this process is at play and asking what role this might play in providing homes, as well as other uses for Londoners.

For the duration of Factory-made Housing exhibition, a series of lunchtime talks will explore key projects, schemes and ideas that feature in the research. Come and eat your lunch whilst hearing from an expert!

This event is part of NLA’s year-long Housing Programme, covering key issues such as affordable housing, public sector land, the private rented sector, off-site manufacture, the appropriate densification of housing and how we enable small developers and custom builders.  

'Factory-made Housing: a solution for London?' is a major NLA research paper, exhibition and events programme.
