Housing Affordability Crisis: Drivers and Solutions – Dr Beth Stratford



This event discusses challenges in defining affordable, decent, or adequate housing and providing homes that are equitable and sustainable in the long term. It brings together architects, housing practitioners, and researchers to discuss future housing standards and ambitions.

Dr Beth Stratford’s research focuses on how environmental protections must go hand in hand with measures to diffuse rentier power and redistribute economic rents.

Curated by Sam Jacoby and Lucia Alonso, of the Royal College of Art, this symposium was part of the project ‘Housing Standardisation: The Architecture of Regulations and Design Standards’, funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council.
