Urban centres in this country have been failing fast through a combination of conventional high street shopping that’s been swallowed up by the online world and bland gentrification, which has eliminated local character. Added to this, the pandemic has made many people feel lonely and isolated. We need to regenerate the hearts of our cities and towns as places for us all to come together. Urban green public spaces can also play an important part, not only socially and experientially, but also by contributing something towards solving the climate crisis.
Lisa Finlay, Group Leader at Heatherwick Studio, will outline the studio’s ethos and design process and present the new vision for Broadmarsh, discussing the early thinking behind how to bring this part of Nottingham’s city centre back to life.
This event will take place 4-5pm on Thursday 16 June in the Keighton Auditorium on University Park Campus.
