Julia Heslop

  • A Critical Examination of Self-build Construction as One Solution to the Current Social Housing Crisis.
Julia is conducting research into housing in Albania and making extensive use of video to record and disseminate her research. In August, Julia presented a film at the Art Kontakt Festival, which has a high domestic profile, and her research has subsequently been published in the national newspaper MAPO. Furthermore, she has had an article published in the The New Left Project and is an active blogger.  Additionally, Julia was part of a team that won second prize in a competition called “REcall,” which is an EU-funded architecture competition that seeks to formulate a new role for forgotten sites from the Second World War via engagement with the arts and cultural sectors. She helped to present on a proposed project in Rome at the Nordic Embassy in Berlin in April 2014.
