Event / Glass-House Debates: Do We Accept the Status Quo in Place?
March 18, 2015 @ 18:00 - 20:30 GMT
The Academy is delighted once again to partner with The Glass-House Community Led Design in their annual debate series.
To a More Ambitious Place seeks to question the practice, governance, foresight and culture surrounding placemaking in order to stimulate debate on how we push our aspirations to the next level. The series will bring together a diverse audience and a range of perspectives in placemaking to debate the issues and challenge accepted thinking.
The fourth in the series of events, will look to address: How has our culture determined how we make places? Have we demanded enough of ourselves? If we were more proactive, would our ambitions become a reality?
