Talk by Fionn Stevenson

Ever wondered what really drives the development of good housing? The Dundee Civic Trust, in collaboration with Dundee Institute of Architects, has developed new Housing Recommendations for all house builders to use. This talk will explore the history of housing standards, showcase exemplar new housing projects in the UK and explore how these new recommendations can help to deliver top quality, sustainable housing in the context of Dundee.

Professor Fionn Stevenson is a well known sustainable housing design expert who specialises in evaluating whether or not housing design actually delivers. She also co-authored the Sustainable Housing Design Guide for Scotland. Following a successful career as an architect, she held academic appointments in five UK Universities, and has recently moved back to Dundee.
