With the current big push on factory-made housing, what opportunities and challenges does this present the future of housing in London? How are we employing innovative models of construction and delivery to meet the 66,000 homes needed each year?From innovative methodologies, intelligent systems and the supply chain, this exhibition explores how factory methods are transforming how we deliver homes in the capital. How can London achieve a truly ‘modular mindset’ and fully embrace factory-based methods to improve the delivery, sustainability and quality of London’s housing demands? Roundtables, viewpoints and interviews, have been combined with a call out for projects to produce this piece of research into factory-made housing. The outcomes of which will form a publication, this exhibition and a series of events. This exhibition will be open from Wednesday 10 October until Friday 18 January in the NLA Galleries. The three-month programme of events taking place for the duration of the exhibition will further explore key themes, forming a core part of the NLA Housing programme.
