The pandemic has changed our relationship with public space. How might we use it to meet, commute, work and socialise in the future and who can access it?
What have we learnt about how we want to interact with the public realm and how to we ensure it’s accessible to all? How we use the public realm is likely to change, with wider ownership of spaces and improved accessibility for all.
In this panel session we’ll look at adaptions from 2020 where public realm was quickly repurposed, examples of wider use of the public realm via Meanwhile and socially inclusive projects and how the recently launched London Design Guide will shape future plans.
Joining us will be David Knight and Cristina Monteira, DK-CM founders who have just launched the Mayor of London’s design guidelines for expanding London’s public realm; architect Jan Kattein who creates projects that leave a social and a physical legacy and Bob-Stephenson-Padron from Belsize Village Business Association who organised the first Streatery in Camden in and sparked the movement in the borough.Photo © Jan Kattein Architects
