Learning from The Great Streets

November 13 @ 13:00 14:30 GMT

Sponsored by Savills

The Urbanism Lunch Hour takes a break while we celebrate and learn from some of the past finalists of The Urbanism Awards.

Due to the pandemic the Academy will not be able to run the usual Urbanism Awards programme this year. We have decided to run a review of some of the best finalists and winners.

This is the fourth session in our ‘Urbanism Awards Revisited’ programme. Learn how three vibrant streets in England, Scotland and Ireland have faced challenges since the Academy’s last assessment visits. 
We are delighted to be joined by representatives from Argyle Street in Glasgow, Oliver Plunket Street in Cork and Park Lane in Poynton.
The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the shift to online shopping that was already hurting high streets. As we undergo Lockdown #2 in the UK, find out how these streets were able to respond to the Spring lockdown and how they intend to navigate an uncertain future.

This year’s Awards process is an opportunity to meet again and learn more about how each place has been changed through the years and how it has recently responded to the Covid-19 pandemic. Through a series of seminars held at lunchtime on consecutive Friday’s starting in October, we will hold the Awards – Urbanism Lunch Hours. Our goal is to learn from the Places, hear about their strengths and their successes while they will learn from their fellow places and their stories.

This is sure to be an incredibly relevant and insightful event!
