RIBA South West (Exeter) - Place making, what's the future of place? | Venaspace | Tuesday, 24. November 2020

Place making, what's the future of place?

What are the diverse futures of place? The role of design is important in creating places and delivering homes for the future. The interactive and informative seminar will be offering an understanding of the cultural, social and environmental challenges of shaping places. During this seminar, there will be discussion of how you, as architects, can broaden your knowledge to integrate public realm, movement planning and urban design in your practice and/or work collaboratively with other disciplines and communities. In detail, the seminar will offer the following:  

Test how the NPPF and the forthcoming PPG on design can offer a better platform for architects to lead and contribute to positive place shaping  

Explore how drivers such as climate change, health and demography will inform place in the future 

Offer case studies and expand upon recent RIBA national initiatives such as Design Matters and Future Place 

Discuss opportunities to work together to strengthen expertise about the policies, tools and processes that can shape places such as design frameworks, codes, design guides, charrettes and national standards 

Explore case studies from the RIBA’s Design Matters and Future Place initiatives, Public Practice, the national Design Network and more
