Admission: FREE
Ticketing: Open

Join UCL Urban Laboratory for the launch of Urban Pamphleteer #3: Design & Trust, as part of the programme for Cities Methodologies 2014.

Urban Pamphleteer is a series of publications that confront key contemporary urban questions from diverse perspectives. Written in a direct and accessible tone, these pamphlets draw on the history of radical pamphleteering as a tool for instigating change.

Design & Trust asks what the consequences are of prioritising defence and security as a first principle in design – an issue that has recently fired up the news agenda in public campaigns to remove ‘anti-homeless’ spikes and critiques of so-called ‘hostile architecture’ in public spaces.

A number of the researchers and artists featured in this issue will be in conversation to summarise their contributions. Urban Pamphleteer is supported by the UCL Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities and the UCL Urban Laboratory.
