Social housing in Britain has its roots in the early 19th century, although the earliest social housing scheme dates to the 16th century and is still inhabited today in Augsburg. The introduction of comprehensive public housing schemes coincided with the march of the Industrial Revolution requiring the rapid development of homes for workers, which became widespread after the 1919 Addison Act. This course will discover why and how these schemes were created, their impact, and legacy, with reference to comparable projects worldwide.
