Think Beach: Experiments in Place Making
6-8pm 14th August, Bristol Urban Beach.
The urban renaissance is now ten years old. But can we yet call it a great
age of cities? In the last great age- the Victorian era- cities created all sorts
of new inventions- public baths, parks, museums, libraries- all new ways to
meet public need during a period of dramatic economic and social change.
In contrast the urban renaissance is in danger of dissolving into a formula
of luxury apartment blocks and bendy bridges. This event will explore
how cities can get better at prototyping new kinds of urban spaces, places
and buildings that meet our 21st aspirations and life-styles.
Chair: Dominic Murphy Director of Creating Excellence South West
