Housing is the most significant built form in cities. On this walk, we see how architects and planners over the ages have experimented with this building type, often challenging the established norms.
Starting at Belsize Park Station, we trace the history of urban housing over the last 200 years. We discover the remarkable story of the iconic Isokon Building and explore unique examples of post-war social housing by The London Borough of Camden’s Architecture Department. Not always pretty, the buildings on this tour comprise a fascinating comparison of housing types.
