Javier Arpa, architect and member of a+t research group, gave a lecture at the Collective Housing in Europe lecture series in the Czech Technical University CTU yesterday.
The lecture, entitled Density is Home and inspired by the book of the same name, explained what density is and what density is not, how the agents and the fluxes that shape the city influence it and why the only means to reach a dense city is to build desirable housing.
