Public Housing Works
In response to a severe housing shortages and high prices making homes unaffordable to many, architects are once again re-engaging with the public housing sector. Today local authorities are taking back control, and with residents, prioritising high quality design to deliver some of the best new homes in the UK. 'Public Housing Works' presents a monograph about the projects and processes behind one of the UK's leading public housing practices, Karakusevic Carson Architects. Featuring the practice's major built projects and those in development, 'Public Housing Works' captures a moment in housing history. It tells the story of an incredible period of change across a 20 year period, weaving together the major shifts in design, place making and policy that has shaped public-led architecture.
