Hosted by BDP alongside Birmingham City Council and RIBA among other leading industry organisations, the Building Brum housing debate this month will focus on the theme of quality or quantity.

Chaired by RIBA president Ben Derbyshire, the event, which takes place in Birmingham on 14 May, will ask if both quality and quantity can be achieved in housing.

The debate will cover subjects including whether quality homes and places can be achieved in an uncertain market; and can the manufacturing and digitalisation of housing drive up quality or just help increase quantity.

Panellists include: 

  • Louise Wyman, director of design and development, WMCA
  • Mary Parsons, group executive director, Places for People; chair of TCPA; and Building Better Building Beautiful commissioner
