28 Jan Seminar #19 Innovative Housing Solutions
In large cities like London experimentation with co-living and other innovative forms of residential development is well underway. Changes in housing typologies and paradigms are indeed taking place in many parts of the world.
Is the modernist dogma of “self-contained flats” and “vertical cities” still relevant? If we are living our spaces and communicate with people differently, how significant is the impact of this change on the way we build and use our dwellings? Do we need a new way of designing cities and to explore new untapped markets?
Martina Juvara is an urban designer with more than 25 years’ experience in large-scale masterplans, policy-making and regeneration projects in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

She will share with us her point of view on the challenges of contemporary city-making and the new trends in planning for housing.
