A Right to Build
The UK has a housing crisis. It is not just a short-term crisis of supply in the aftermath of the banking crisis, but also a long-term crisis of poor quality, unaffordability, unsociability and unsustainability. A Right to Build is the result of a Knowledge Transfer research collaboration between the University of Sheffield School of Architecture and Architecture 00:/. Learning from experts and pioneers, it investigates the potential of self-provided housing as a way forward for UK housing in the 21st century: how individuals and communities can collectively form a bottom-up, sustainable and affordable mass-housebuilding industry.
