Two Point Perspective podcast: Sydney Social Housing

In this podcast presenters Rebecca Hawcroft and Kieran McInerney chat with architectural historian and heritage specialist Dr Noni Boyd and architect Dr Michael Zanardo. Their architecture guide map Affordable Housing Sydney reveals the incredible range and quality of local affordable housing over time.

Affordable Housing Sydney brings together for the first time Sydney’s rich but relatively unknown built history of affordable housing.

From terraces to towers, each of the selected inner-city affordable housing projects spanning the last century is located and recorded chronologically with recognition for the delivery body and designer.

Affordable Housing Sydney reveals the incredible range and quality of local affordable housing over time which has dealt with the perennial design questions of density, amenity and city-making.

Highlighting both successes and shortcomings, this collection of urban affordable housing projects provides an important window into this largely untold story.
