Below is a full transcript of the event held on the 28th June at Cressingham Gardens between invited speakers: architects who work in regeneration, academics who specialise in gentrification, housing activists, and council estate residents; and members of the public.

We wanted to ask what agency the architect has, and discuss its limits and potential. Our aim was to facilitate an active discussion between all of the ‘experts’ in, and those directly affected by, estate ‘regeneration’.
