This project serves as a modern exploration into the current housing crisis of the UK. This is accomplished by analysing the notion of community-led housing and investigating its effectiveness in providing affordable houses. The final body of work also contains visual connections to the past through images of social housing, while the ideas around the fight between the free and and the private market are explored. Thus, the concepts of ownership and individuality that exist in community-led housing are also questioned through the transformative effect of building new homes. Finally, great emphasis is given to the importance of the sustainability of local communities by these housing organisations.
