International Perspectives on Housing – Experiences and Thoughts from the UK, Sweden and the Netherlands

The UK, Sweden and the Netherlands each have their own market dynamics and all face their own challenges when it comes to meeting demand for housing. How do different countries tackle these challenges? Architects from the three countries will discuss issues like: combining affordability and good quality in housing; models for social/affordable housing; densification and land use; how infill-sites can make a positive contribution to an existing area; the role of housing in smart cities and how to incorporate the latest methods and technology to best effect.

The discussion will be in English and will be led by Charlotta Holm Hildebrand, former Head of International Affairs at Architects Sweden

Learning from the life of global practices – UK’s experience of international design work

Grimshaw, Hadid and Foster are three of the biggest names in architecture, and each practice began in London-based studios focussed on the genius of their founders. Now, all three studios have grown to large scale, and their architects design buildings on a global stage at large scale, while maintaining extraordinary ambition in their work. In this session, architects from each of these practices will talk about recent projects, and about how their approach to design relates to the work of their illustrious founders.

The discussion will be in English and will be led by Kieran Long, Director of ArkDes, Sweden’s national centre for architecture and design.
