#BetterCities Talks is back in March with a talk on Social Housing: Housing Vs. Habitat! Join us on Saturday 22 March at Menara Bata, PJ Trade Centre.
Each year, the budget boasts about an increase in the number of social housing, but quantity is not a sufficient way to deal with the underlying issues of social housing. Under maintenance, poor design and inefficient social facilities result in producing four-walled homes, but not habitats which enhance the well-being of its occupants.
How could design be critically re-imagined for the existing image and expectation of social housing in Malaysia? How can good design and architecture uplift and enhance relationships within a social housing community?
Speakers include Ms. Lillian Tay, Senior Principal at VERITAS Architects and Dr. Clarence Shubert, an independent consultant working with the UNDP for research on housing for lower income groups in Malaysia.
The talk runs from 2.30pm – 4.00pm (entry from 2.00pm) at the Glass Lantern Lobby, Menara Bata, PJ Trade Centre in Damansara Perdana.
