Our 2017 placemaking programme is in full swing: we’ve held a debate, roundtable and workshop; several field trips across London; and our 28 June conference, our largest event to date. The full-day conference, sponsored by Countryside Properties, Lendlease, Pollard Thomas Edwards, Arup and Regeneris, looked at the value of place and placemaking – as well as how this can be measured more effectively.
Shaking up the conference format, we provided more interactive sessions, including two workshops and PechaKucha-style presentations from recent Future London Leaders graduates. We also had traditional sessions on topics including large-scale placemaking, valuing the everyday, management and maintenance of places, lighter/quicker/cheaper initiatives, and emerging methods of valuing place.
The conference was free to attend thanks to our sponsors.
