JULIAN WILLIAMS: On the Estate
What makes an estate, and what does it mean to be part of one? What do estates embody and how do they act as vehicles for change, or resistance to change? These questions form the research context for an emerging networking project which examines the concept of the estate as a model for developing and managing housing. The plan is to set up a network of academics, professionals and users with the aim of developing a deeper understanding of the estate from history and from current developments, and to then disseminate this knowledge and help shape more informed future practices in the field.
Julian Williams is an architect, Principal Lecturer and BA Architecture Course Leader at the University of Westminster.
