Can we design out poverty by creating great landscapes?

Traditional thinking about tackling poverty rarely considers the impact of the designed landscape. However, good design and well-planned landscape can address inequality and raise aspirations, as evidenced by the projects featured in the Rethinking the Urban Landscape exhibition.

Confirmed speakers include:

- Pam Warhurst of Incredible Edible Todmorden

- Julia Thrift of TCPA 

- Rolf Roscher of Erz ltd

- Noel Farrer of Farrer Huxley Associates/Landscape Institute

- Bob Bagley of Sayes Court Garden

Chaired by: Lewis Blackwell of The Building Centre and Paul Lincoln of the Landscape Institute.

This event will be followed by a Q&A and drinks reception. 

This is the second in a series of events that illustrate and expand on the themes of Rethinking the Urban Landscape, an exhibition curated by The Building Centre and the Landscape Institute. Each event asks a question that addresses future learning and thinking for the design profession. Speakers include landscape architects, policymakers, community activists and industry leaders.

Cost: £8.50 per person
