Had a very interesting meeting yesterday at Ash Sakula http://ashsak.com. Cany Ash was hosting a meet-up of prospective custom builders; architects, developers, psychologists and a computer programmer who works at the BBC.
We discussed the current horrendous situation with housing in London, the sadness of the mediocre design and tiny spaces generated by profit-driven development, examples of co-ops and co-operatives in the UK and abroad, wiki-houses, Chinese modular built skyscrapers, problems with finding suitable sites for self-build and the potential of crowdfunding.
People were interested in the St James St site …. we will see what develops!
