Placemaking

We're back with our second installment of creative driven community talks!

Join us at Glug Bradford for insights and discussion around what “placemaking” means to different people, in the hope it can lead onto some more positive discussions and place-making activities in the city in the long run.

We'll be meeting at a central Bradford location of Assembly Bradford on North Parade before we embark on a vintage bus across town to Lister Mills where our hosts Urban Splash will be offering a guided tour of their roof pods with excellence views across the city before we settle in our programme of talks.

Karl Lenton Creative Director at Seeds.

The original inspiration for the Seedpod was born from work in the public sector. Seeds found that there was often tension between the need for privacy, pressure on space, and constraints on budgets. Specifically wanting to help NHS health professionals serve their patients and staff better. So the Seedpod was designed, a portable private space where professionals and patients could meet for privacy, one-to-one conversations, mindfulness and more.

The team soon realised that what works in one complex environment can be valuable in others. Seedpods now provide private, calming space for innovators, place makers, educators and exhibitors. A beautiful, versatile solution to the universal need for nurture.

Clients include: British Land, Universal Music Group, NHS, HMPS, Tate Modern, WIRED and Accenture.

Karl will be talking on the origins of Seedpods and how design can transcend environments and places.
