Dwelling: Accordia

Dwelling describes the design and architecture of this new residential quarter in Cambridge, a multi-award winning green project. In 2008 Accordia became the first housing development ever to win the prestigious Stirling Prize, the highest accolade awarded to architecture in the UK.

Dwelling: Accordia is written by Paul Drew, an architect and resident of the scheme, and Ivor Richards, an architect and architectural historian—, both of whom provide a unique insight into what it is like to live in Accordia, as well as placing it in the context of contemporary UK, European and North American housing design.
