After the recent Halloween and bonfire night celebrations, the autumn spirit has fully set-in in London. Make sure you brave the cold to get out to this week's series of talks and walks with a focus on London's housing crisis, and the future (and past) of women in the architectural field.
Celebrating 100 years of women in the AA, this exhibition explores the history and narrative of women's presence within the architectural profession through photographs, drawings and archived materials.
Two walks on Saturday form part of New London Architecture's London's Towns series. The morning tour looks at Brixton's major regeneration in terms of cultural and public realm upgrades, and the afternoon takes to Walthamstow to discover its new pedestrian initiatives and recent developments. The two locations lie on the extreme ends of the Victoria Line.
The biggest problem London faces is that of housing, and this event will cover three elements of the issue. Three speakers will talk about communities, affordability, shared spaces, and self-build.
Housing situations are often attributed to be the core of social inequality. This talk delves into the ways in which architects, designers, developers, and councils can work together to address this issue.
