The Architecture of Place: Filling the 'Missing Middle' of the Housing Market
Perhaps now more than ever before, we are all aware of the built environment that surrounds us, and of the impacts it has on the health of individuals, communities, and the planet. The Architecture of Place series brings together the established and emerging voices working to create a better built future.
The third event in the 'Architecture of Place' series was held on 10th November 2020, with presentations from speakers Robbie Kerr, Dan Parolek, and Jason Syvixay, moderated by Alireza Sagharchi.
It is difficult to find a country in the world not currently facing a housing crisis. The scale, scope, and nature of the challenge varies from place to place. There is, however, one fundamental reality across the globe: we need to provide more homes; and we need to find the ways to do this that benefit communities without harming the environment.
This talk outlines the concept of ‘missing middle housing’ and how traditional methods of design can create better places to live, for everyone.
