Nathanael Lauster, author of The Death and Life of the Single-Family House: Lessons from Vancouver on Building a Livable City, will be talking about how the single-family house came to acquire special protection across the Lower Mainland, why people are so attached to houses, and also how Metro Vancouver has moved further away from this specific housing form than any other metropolis in North America. In addition, he will also discuss two common questions with the audiences:
Why is acquiring a single-family house so important to so many people?
What lessons, if any, does Vancouver hold for other metro areas?
Nathanael is an associate professor at the University of British Columbia. He writes and researches on housing and home and also regularly blogs at WordPress.com.
