In the first event in the Social Talks series, we revisit the century-old concept of the ‘minimum dwelling’ in the light of today’s urgent housing shortage. Conditions and living patterns have radically shifted over the past 100 years, but could this historic formula be a solution to modern problems? With contributions by Golnar Abbasi and Arvand Pourabbasi (WORKNOT!), and Giovanna Borasi (director of CCA). The evening is moderated by Tara Lewis.
