Book Launch - Housing Plans For The Future by Professor Donovan Wylie, Belfast School of Art

Housing Plans for the Future reveals the complex and ambiguous use of architecture as a means of containment and control within social housing in Belfast. The defensive structures built between 1970s and 8Os are experienced via a series of walks through the neighbourhoods of the inner city. A largely unrecognised facet of conflict-era architecture, this seemingly benign environment functions as a legacy of the Northern lreland conflict.
