Supported Event / Future City Talk: Knowledge-Intensive Growth
February 3, 2017 @ 14:00 - 17:00 GMT
The Cambridge – Milton Keynes – Oxford growth Corridor
This year’s programme of talks and events by FRF in collaboration with MK Gallery is concentrating on local and regional issues, and particularly on those issues that have been raised by Plan: MK and the MK Futures 2050 programme.
The first event to be held in February will look at the Government’s interest in the Cambridge- Milton Keynes – Oxford growth corridor, and the brief given to the National Infrastructure Commission. NIC has been asked to maximise the potential of the corridor as a single, knowledge-intensive cluster and to ensure this competes on a global stage, while protecting the area’s high quality environment, and securing the homes and jobs that the area needs. The event will be held at MK Gallery in Central Milton Keynes.
Speakers at the event will include:
• Sadie Morgan – Director, dRMM Architects, NIC Commissioner.
• Louise Wyman AoU – HCA, Garden Villages, Towns and Cities Lead.
• David Rudlin AoU – Chair, The Academy of Urbanism; Director, URBED (Urbanism Environment and Design) Ltd and winner of the 2014 Wolfson Economic Prize.
• Hilary Chipping – Deputy CEO, Head of Infrastructure. SEMLEP
• Clive Faine – Chair PDIIDG Subgroup, SEMLEP
The guest chair for the afternoon will be:
• John Worthington AoU – Founding Partner, DEGW; Commissioner, Independent Transport Commission; The Academy of Urbanism.
The focus of the event is on good design being at the centre of any strategic plan for infrastructure, housing and jobs and to understand how infrastructure in all its manifestations can enable new and expanded settlements which incorporate the highest standards of design and place making.
