Architects Cany Ash and Sasa Radulovic, judges for the brand new AR Housing awards, will be talking at a seminar in London on 2 June
AR Housing is part of The Architectural Review’s new awards programme. This award celebrates the best housing projects constructed within the last five years – from social and public/private to private schemes; from small-scale to large-scale projects; from housing complexes to student residences to apartment blocks.
Judging for AR Housing takes place on Thursday 2 June at the AR offices in Old Street, with esteemed judges Cany Ash and Sasa Radulovic. The Architectural Review will be holding a seminar in the evening of 2 June about housing, during which there will be an opportunity to ask Radulovic and Ash questions and also view some of the AR Housing entries.
With housing one of the most pressing issues of the moment, the talk will highlight the potential of social architecture. Radulovic will be talking about ‘Housing vs Home-ing’, while Ash will talk about ‘the future of sociable housing… capturing the space between front doors’.
