Save Event: Transforming Tradition

I've seen this

Should architects preserve the past or is it time for a housing revolution?


The cottage has become romanticised to the point of being kitsch and newly constructed tower blocks are punctuating our skylines. In a country where streets of terraced houses are boarded up for demolition in one city, but sold for over a million pounds each in another, panellists debate whether architects should preserve the past or if it’s time for a housing revolution.

Speakers include Elizabeth McKellar (Open University) and Dan Cruickshank (BBC historian).

This event is part of the exhibition 'At Home in Britain: Designing the House of Tomorrow'.
