Lisbon Workshop: Roundtable

Published on 15-09-2021

On Thursday 23, roundtable on Transdisclipinary Research for Affordable and Sustainable Housing, starting at 10:00 (CET -1). 

Free access to the online session.

The field of housing research is characterised by siloed thinking with little debate across disciplines. The aim of this event is to consider the way in which housing is approached from different disciplinary perspectives and to think about ways in which multi-, cross- and transdisciplinary research has been carried out so far in Europe and the UK. 

How can research on housing address the global challenges of climate change and of social inequalities and in the same time engage with concrete practice in architecture, engineering, planning and public policy? A historical approach to housing research and its “disciplines” will help engage this timely debate. 


This event will be chaired by Flora Samuel, Professor at the University of Reading, UK. Panel members will be:   

  • David Clapham, Professor of Housing and Urban Studies, University of Glasgow  

  • Gilles Debizet, Professor in Urban Planning, University Grenoble Alpes 

  • Doina Petrescu, Professor of Architecture and Design Activism, University of Sheffield 

  • Ashraf Salama, Professor of Architecture, University of Strathclyde
