The Mayor’s Good Growth by Design programme sets the vision for good growth in the city and calls upon those delivering change in the built environment to realise it. As part of the programme, Supporting Diversity is a key pillar that is working towards a more representative sector, and striving for best practice while designing for diversity.
LFA 2018: How can the city become more inclusive, equal and attractive to everyone?
Responding to this year’s London Festival of Architecture theme of ‘Identity’, White Arkitekter, supported by the Mayor of London, presents Designing for Diversity – a panel debate to explore the value of inclusive, equitable places in the context of the Mayor’s Good Growth by Design programme.
Designing for Diversity welcomes a variety of architects, urban planners and built environment experts to the stage to showcase best-practice project examples and practice-based research on designing for inclusion and diversity.
On June 18, as part of the London Festival of Architecture 2018, White Arkitekter will present the processes and findings from its workshop series ‘Places for Girls’, which is part of the firm’s extensive research into inclusive design and which demonstrates practical methods for gender-based urban planning from girls’ perspective.
Hear from White Arkitekter, Greater London Authority, Adam Khan Architects, Fielden Fowles Architects and the London Borough of Waltham Forest on the opportunities and challenges of delivering inclusive and equitable spaces in built and future developments across the capital.
The event will be chaired by Francesca Perry, Assistant Editor of Blueprint Magazine and founding Editor of Thinking City, a platform for the exploration of urban experience and city life.
The London Festival of Architecture runs from 1 – 30 June.
