What will our future homes look like?

With the growth of cities, the demand for new housing is greater than ever.

Can we deliver more homes without destroying the green belt? Are modern methods of construction key to solving the current housing crisis?

What does new technology and density mean for citizens of the future? And what does it mean for the design and construction industries?

Join Henrik Johnnson of BoKlok (a joint venture between Skanska and IKEA), Architect Yuli Cadney-Toh (BDP), Dr. Rehan Khodabuccus of ZED Pods and Elena Marco of UWE Bristol for a lively discussion on the housing of the future.
