Factory-made housing is a major theme in this issue, coinciding with the NLA's research report 'Factory-made Housing' and the various talks and tours investigating the topic. Mark Farmer, who has led much of this call to revolutionise – characterised by his ‘Modernise or Die’ review for central government – adds his weight to that crusade. In our New Londoner feature this issue, he suggests that Brexit may actually be the catalyst required to shock the industry into action by the threat of a marked drop-off in labour-force skills.

This issue also features a special on Hidden Homelessness, Waugh Thistleton Architects, Damien Hirst’s Soho offices, Kat Hanna, and Kirsten Lees.
