New thinking in housing?

  • Comment

You want to take this site and shake it by the scruff of the neck. First the ridiculously long address with totally unnecessary capitals (you can get there with lower case) which gets your fingers in a twist. And there is the fact that there are almost no illustrations. One of the big issues in house building is stupid Noddy-house design. You quickly get the impression that the few innovations in housing listed have not been illustrated because the innovations are practical and not aesthetic. Supporting this view, one of the schemes listed is a very old Greater London Council project which I happen to know looks like every other local-authority scheme of the late '60s. A bit of new web design/content thinking required by the perpetrators, Joseph Rowntree Foundation and SPRU 2000.
