28 June placemaking conference

London placemaking conference

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, LendleasePollard 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.

A conference summary is available here and slides are here.

The conference was free to attend thanks to our sponsors.
