19 Jun 2020

RIBA publishing released Caroline’s ‘Radical Housing’ book as an essential design guide for architects and others interested in innovative housing typologies.

This book considers some of the alternative opportunities for creating more homes and sociable, cohesive communities. Abundantly illustrated with case studies and plans from projects across the UK and abroad, this book aims to inform and inspire the delivery of alternative approaches to affordable and flexible housing, and is an essential text for architecture practitioners, students, and community groups.

It outlines the social, health and economic benefits deriving from the design of homes for all generations, and from a community-led perspective.

Caroline has a lifelong enthusiasm for designing places to live with the communities who will live there, giving them more choice and ownership of the design and long-term stewardship of their homes.

Designing places for all generations to live sustainably, encouraging social interaction and the development of strong communities is a collective endeavour, and has inspired a wide range of successful places which are explored in this book. This book explores radical ways of living together.
