Bright ideas: Seven ways to fix the housing crisis

Seventy years on from the 1947 Congres International d’Architecture Moderne (CIAM) in Bridgwater – a remarkable meeting of brilliant minds shaping the future of modern housing – we explore and examine the concepts and theories that will build the houses of tomorrow, and solve the housing crisis we live through today.

Also this week:

  • The show must go on… Jane Graham lifts the curtain on Alex Salmond’s fourth act as he takes to the stage at the Edinburgh Festival this month. A frank and fascinating interview, the former First Minister of Scotland doesn’t hold back.
  • In Letter To My Younger Self, singer-songwriter Randy Newman tells his 16-year-old self “everything is going to be alright”.
  • Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder remembers music mogul Tony Wilson, 10 years on from his death.

And, as always, much more.
