This month’s Dezeen In Depth newsletter features a piece on the regeneration of social housing estates and an interview with Dune: Part Two production designer Patrice Vermette.

The latest piece in our Social Housing Revival series explores the tough challenges that UK councils face in addressing the urgent housing crisis.

The redevelopment of social housing estates, involving the demolition of existing properties and their replacement with new housing, has stirred controversy in Britain due to its tendency to decrease the availability of homes designated for social rent.
