Speaker information

Various speakers

Starting with the premise that universities can promote knowledge and ideas about urbanism not only through teaching and research, but also through their own estates strategies and spatial development plans, this seminar brings together eight speakers to lead on an open discussion focusing on the following themes:

  • What are the key drivers for university development?
  • How can spatial development plans balance academic and real estate priorities, while also contributing to urban renewal ‘beyond the red line’, and how do architects act as mediators in that process?
  • How can universities most effectively communicate their visions for development, and forge successful partnerships with other urban agents and urban communities to realise wider social benefits and develop models for inclusive urbanism that prioritise local needs in conjunction with global reach?

The seminar will also launch a limited print edition of the Urban Lab’s 'Case Studies in University-led Urban Regeneration'.
