Join Dr David Knight and Guy Rochezas they launch the Society's 2018 Planning School series. What is the future for the terraced and semi-detached house? What is the accumulated effect of backyard extensions? When does planning turn into non-planning? To what extent will London's housing growth be delivered in the suburbs? 

Dr David Knight is a designer, strategist, author and Co-director of architecture, planning and research studio DK-CM. He holds a PhD in architecture from the Royal College of Art where he is also a Visiting Lecturer, running ADS2 since 2012. He has delivered research which questions the limits of architectural production and explores new forms of agency and communication, notably the book SUB-PLAN: A Guide to Permitted Development (2009) and Building Rights(2010-), David’s PhD project on the politics of planning knowledge.

Guy Rochez is a Senior Officer and Architect in Croydon Council's Placemaking team, where he leads on the policy of suburban intensification. He has experience of developing strategic proposals that seek to work at a local scale; he was previously Head of Development at the design and development practice PARTI, where he oversaw the planning and delivery of a large-scale regeneration project in South Australia and smaller residential projects across London. His proposal for a new town in Mayfair that expanded the Grosvenor Estates vision for the area and was shortlisted in the NLA’s 100 Ideas for Housing London competition.
