Who’s top dog now? During past months, true power structures have been revealed and their resilience tested. At the same time, we’ve glimpsed different ways to live, forcing us to re-evaluate what matters. Seen in this new light, the value of our homes, our streets, our cities is being redefined.
In this LabCast, we explore how a shift in power will affect place-making and places in the future. How will our cities be reimagined? Who will reinvent them? What new lines of power will be drawn or shared?
Due to Covid-restrictions, our June 2020 PlaceLabs was in the format of an online LabCast.
Recorded on 3 June 2020, our speakers were:
Meredith Bossin – Director of Engagement at the Waterloo Greenway Conservancy, a wondrous cultural parkland in the heart of Austin, Texas.
Hanna Benihoud – Artist, architect and activist based in London, whose work explores gender and youth.
Ayaz Basrai – Designer, architect and founder of the BusRide studio in Mumbai, who focuses on design that is both speculative and social.
This event was part of the London Festival of Architecture.
