Sheffield Urban Design Week

Sheffield Urban Design Week is an annual series of events bringing together built environment practitioners, students, local residents and anyone with an interest in the shape of the city. This years’ programme of events runs between Thursday 16 October and Saturday 25 October 2014, and offers a wide range of talks, discussion, participatory walks, hands on workshops and presentations on topical issues surrounding urban design and Sheffield.

Questions will be asked including: What role and opportunities are presented by university campuses in the city? How can public art play a role in changing and reinforcing place and identity? How might we rethink and reinterpret the library; can it be considered a key social, educational and economic community asset?

Be sure to register your vote for the Sheffield Design Awards, ‘Peoples Award’ hosted by the Sheffield Civic Trust. The winners will be announced at The Arts Tower, University of Sheffield on Friday 17 October 2014.
