Urban Lab Films presents an encore screening of 'Equal by Design' by Peg Rawes and Beth Lord, following the London public premiere earlier in June.

'Equal By Design' is a documentary film about equality, wellbeing and the UK housing crisis. Made with Lone Star Productions, it examines economic and housing inequality in the UK housing crisis, with contributors from the architectural profession, national charities, journalism and academia.

Structured in 3 parts, the film shows how the 17thc. Dutch philosopher, Baruch Spinoza’s theory of wellbeing and equality can be used to analyse housing and income inequalities, and how his ideas relate to post-war and current-day social housing design.

Created by Peg Rawes (Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL) and Beth Lord (University of Aberdeen), 'Equal By Design' is funded as part of the AHRC project Equalities of Wellbeing, with additional funding from The University of Aberdeen and The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL.
