Experiencing Density: Report Launch
Start 18:30, End 20:00
Dense new towers, courtyard blocks and riverside homes are appearing across London, but there has been little research asking residents themselves what works and what doesn’t. Since 2016, a team of LSE researchers has been investigating how residents experience living in high-density housing.
At this report launch event, the researchers will present findings about life in 14 high-density schemes across the capital. They will be joined by architect Bob Allies, Professor Loretta Lees, and Tower Hamlets head of regeneration Sripriya Sudhakar, who will respond to the report and open a discussion about what it means for the future of London housing.
Findings from the research are presented in a user-friendly format on the project's website, which includes visual depictions and key facts from each of the 14 housing schemes.
