With cities all over the world growing at an ever increasing speed, the issue of providing affordable housing is of global importance. How can the large scale demand for decent housing be accommodated? How do possible solutions impact the livability, vibrancy and sustainability of our world’s cities? How can industrial efficiency and mass production be met with local conditions? And, finally, what role can European architects play in providing solutions worldwide?

The Capita Selecta lecture series addresses this issue of affordable housing in exploding cities. By focusing on different areas in the world – Ethiopia, China, Russia and India – the importance of local cultural conditions will be explored. In a double lecture, Daan Roggeveen (Go West Project) will present a more general overview of the particularities of the housing issue in China at hand, while Liu Xiaodu (Urbanus Architecture & Design)  will discuss the issue from the point of view of the architectural practice.

7 June, 6pm
