Presented by Architecture Centre | What will our future homes look like? Join us for this lively discussion on the future of housing.

With the growth of cities, the demand for new housing is greater than ever.

Can we deliver more homes without destroying the green belt? Are modern methods of construction key to solving the current housing crisis?

What does new technology and density mean for citizens of the future? And what does it mean for the design and construction industries?

Join Henrik Johnnson of BoKlok (a joint venture between Skanska and IKEA), Architect Yuli Cadney-Toh (BDP), Joe Daniels of Etopia and Elena Marco of UWE Bristol for a lively discussion on the housing of the future.



Elena Marco is Head of Department for Architecture and the Built Environment at UWE Bristol, one of the leading architecture schools in the country.

Before joining the University of the West of England in 2005, Elena built a strong profile in sustainable design at Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios. Now in academia, she continues to develop her research interests, which focus on the crossover between health, sustainability and architecture.

Yuli Cadney-Toh has over 25 years’ experience in international architecture leading multi-disciplinary teams to deliver design led buildings in Europe, USA and Australia.

Yuli has expertise in Tall Buildings Design and Mixed-use Urban Regeneration.

Henrik Johnsson is vice President BoKlok UK, a joint venture between IKEA & SKANSKA. The business spans from land acquisition, project development, to sale and delivery of homes through off site construction.

Joseph Daniels founder of modular house builder and offsite construction specialist Project Etopia.
