Design for all? Affordable housing & the right to the city




In a housing climate dominated by skyrocketing property values, how much do we really value design? Amid the frenzied discussion of affordability, monetary value tends to steal the limelight, with other kinds of value easily sidelined. Can the design of individual housing projects contribute to a better-built, community-driven and fairer city? Or is the real design question a much bigger one, for which we need to look system-wide?


Architects For Peace invites you to join us and a panel of speakers to discuss challenges and opportunities for delivering well-designed housing, while enhancing the right to the city - for all.

Guest Speakers:
Rob McGauran, Founding Director MGS Architects
Dr. Andrea Sharam, School of Property, Construction and Property Management RMIT
Professor Tony Dalton, Centre for Urban Research RMIT
Kate McMahon, Co-Founder Hello City
Kate Raynor, Post Doctoral Research Fellow, Transforming Housing, The university of Melbourne
