Chelmsford Ideas Festival / Essex Housing: Pace over Place?
November 10, 2016 @ 19:00 - December 15, 2016 @ 21:00 GMT
The Chelmsford Ideas Festival has several events under the umbrella of ‘Your City’ supported by The Academy of Urbanism.
Essex invented the design guide in the 1970s, leading to outstanding housing and influencing town planning across the country. With current pressure for building homes, are house builders cutting corners? After the design guide, what is the role of design review? Is quality being left behind? This event reviews the urban design thinking that creates good places and the threats to sustainable communities. With speakers Chris Lamb, Design South East and Esther Kurland, Urban Design London.
