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
