In this micro lecture, Oliver Wainwright, the Guardian's architecture critic, explains why the new mayor must abolish 'viability assessments' to save London's social housing.
The Architecture Foundation has compiled 10 proposals challenging the new mayor to think more ambitiously about London's development.
As part of the AF’s ongoing Manifesto for London project, the 10 proposals have been put forward by leading thinkers on London’s development and address a wide range of issues from workspace to consultation to planning permission to housing.
