# share home @ London's housing struggles

Can different systems of sharing disturb the existing conditions in terms of housing struggles in London, change our value system, modify the way we live and the architecture of our homes?
In London, we are in a permanent state of crisis in terms of housing in London. A crisis with no beginning and no end as London is owned by disconnected interests which creates holes in the fabric of the city and divisions among its users.
What about sharing knowledge, action, leaking planning documents or sharing our homes via some architectural sharing plug-ins?
But does anyone really want to share some tea?

#share data

more than 80 social housing going through regeneration (ie demolition?)

value of the land exchanged £52 billions


#share action

direct action and objects of protest

#share homes on the Carpenters Estate

The property system is one system of coordination but it is not the only one. What if the property system was replaced by a sharing system, based on trust, opennesss, on being together and on active participation ? What if sharing was to be implemented at a more extreme level as a social structure based on constant exchanges and interactions  via a series of architectural plug ins?

But does anyone really want to share some tea ?

#share planning leak

The planning process is supposed to be entirely public and transparent.
It's not.
Its current opacity is its own flaw which can be turned into a sharing opportunity.
A turning point in the planning process in terms of regeneration is the undisclosed negotiations between councils and developers following the planning permission.
These negotiations are currently being used by developers and housing associations to implement luxury developement under the guise of regeneration schemes, with the involvment of consultant firms and architects.

Can these documents be disclosed, be part of the public debate about the future of London ? Can viability criteria be discussed openly and replaced by unusually valued and unquantifiable criteria such as livability, or sharing

Concrete action allows councillors, consultants and architects to upload anonymously these documents, via a traditional snail mail box and a secure drop.
These leaks can potentially slow down the regeneration process, allow for counter regeneration schemes to appear and open a debate on the future of London.
