This section contains research carried out to help the Housing Executive and the Department for Communities to devise appropriate strategies for the regeneration and renewal of specific localities in Northern Ireland.

Translating Housing: Berlin-Belfast

This report explores the similarities between Berlin and Belfast and the sharply contrasting ways that innovation in housing developments has helped create and maintain inclusive, sustainable and civil urban society. Developed by University of Ulster Belfast School of Architecture, the research was supported by the Department for Social Development (now Department for Communities), NI Housing Executive, Strategic Investment Board, NI Federation of Housing Associations, Smartmove NI and the Forum for Alternative Belfast.
