The Art of Placemaking

Sponsored by Futurecity
Ben Luxmoore
London’s built environment is shaped by a myriad of professional interests: from real estate to development, architecture, landscaping, urban design, highway engineering, and planning. But in the midst of all this, have we lost the simple art of placemaking?

This NLA event, sponsored by Futurecity, will bring together leading developers, landowners, local authorities and architects to examine the new approaches being taken to shaping places across the capital, from key opportunity areas to emerging creative districts, and the increasingly important role that 'placemaking' is playing in making developments both economically viable and in shaping new areas of the capital in which people want to live, work and play.
