HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF IN THE £60K HOUSE

  • Comment
LETTERS

It is easy to draw parallels between the current drive to produce mass housing at £60K a shot and the post-war mass-housebuilding project in Britain: the government looks to architects to try to design lots of cheap houses in order to turn around a perceived shortage in the housing stock; architects agree that modular construction is the answer.

What is worrying now is the speed with which architects have rushed, once again, to their drawing boards to produce the designs to answer the same brief, while architects and architecture still haven't fully recovered from the terrible reputation that they gained the last time they did that.
