Event description
Have your say!... Join local, national and international guests for an evening discussion about the modernist design of Coventry, UK.

About this Event

Join us for the first in an exciting new series of events focused on the past, present and future of the modernist architecture and design of Coventry.Infamous for the devastation suffered in the Second World War, Coventry's skyline was changed almost instantly. Many areas of the city were re-imagined through a pioneering vision and much of the city centre has since been Grade II listed.

Together with local, national and international guests, you are invited for an evening of discussion as we explore this heritage and how to re-use and integrate the best elements into contemporary plans and designs. Coventry is rapidly changing… but why, how and for whom?

Hear Esther Heemskerk (Rotterdam City Planner), Diane Dever (Folkestone Fringe), Rashid Bhayat (Positive Youth Foundation), Cllr Jim O'Boyle (Coventry City Council),The Modernist Society and others talk about their own experiences working with growing and changing cities.

Together let's Re-Imagine Coventry and HAVE YOUR SAY... 'How would you redesign the city to work for its people?'.

Free to attend | Refreshments provided | All ages welcome
