We are dedicated to making our research accessible to people so that it can be put to work solving the complex problems that face the housing stock. This principle applies to our written reports and drives us to search for ways to reach our audience succinctly and powerfully. To achieve this, we are developing Housing Informatics: new methods of organizing, communicating, and presenting data and information so they can better serve housing policy, housing development, and housing management. Play a game or see an exhibition or interact with a web feature and learn about our research.
