Here’s the official announcement for the symposium:
On Monday 13th April, Syracuse London is delighted to host a symposium in Faraday House entitled ‘Housing vs. City’.

The symposium has been organised by Syracuse University London’s School of Architecture Director Francisco Sanin and SU London Architecture professor Davide Sacconi. In their words:

As communication networks and financial instruments manipulate the social and economic relationships toward unstable and immaterial conditions, the housing crisis is redefining the political and spatial relationship between city, architecture and housing as alternative models of urbanization.

Syracuse Architecture (London Program)  invites Brett Steele and five emerging European practices to reflect on how a new generation of architects is facing the challenges of this paradoxical conditions through the construction of a project for architecture and the city..

Further details regarding the event can be found on the SU London blog.
