LSE Cities hosts a wide range of free events in London and internationally.
05 December | Citymakers: The Culture and Craft of Practical Urbanism
How is a city made today? In his new book, Citymakers: The Culture and Craft of Practical Urbanism, Cassim Shepard argues that it’s not just the top-down planners, architects and elected officials and bottom-up community groups that shape our cities, but the large and unheralded group in between. Chaired by Julia King, Research Officer at LSE Cities, the event will extend Shepard’s case study of New York to London. Panellists Holly Lewis, co-founder of We Made That and Sven Mündner, an independent consultant for Public Realm strategy and delivery, will join the speaker to discuss the possibilities and necessity of new methods of engagement for a more equitable and sustainable future for cities.
If you are interested in attending this event please register for a free ticket.
