About this Event

This is the second event in a series of public lectures entitled ‘Reading The City’ brought to you by GO! Southampton and Studio: B.A.D.

Join like-minded people on the 3rd of March at Barclays Network Eagle Lab from 5.30pm - 6.30pm and hear from guest speakers who are at the forefront of the contemporary urban debate in Southampton.

This month's theme: The City As An Urban Room

Speakers will be:

Piers Taylor - Invisible Studios

Rupert Cook - Architecture PLB

The public lecture series is the first element within a strategy focused upon raising public awareness, engagement, and participation in a curated process of re-imagining the public urban realm of Southampton. Contributors are each at the forefront of contemporary urban debate and will provide diverse and often challenging perspectives upon the City of the twenty first century. The over-arching objective is to ensure that place-making in the city is informed and inspired by contemporary visions of how our experience of urban life is enhanced.

Too often as a nation we have focussed on the quantity of development and the speed of our regulatory processes, and whilst these matters are important, they should not be at the expense of a clear vision of the sorts of places and communities that we wish to see.’ - Place Making Alliance
