Designing Regenerative Spaces


Lecture, Panel discussion, Workshop

About the Event

Regenerative spaces are those that are rehabilitating, enriching and strengthening - they reverse the damaging effects of life’s challenges. We will explore what this looks like from multiple angles and broaden the discussion beyond the building. **What** A weeknight event where we define what regenerative spaces look and feel like across a range of users, sectors and services, from community health and international development to survivors of domestic violence. **How** We’ll use PechaKucha style presentations from pioneers in health, architecture and the community to spark a fresh discussion. Together, speakers and guests will develop ideas to inform the design of regenerative spaces. **Who** Chris Watson (Director, Maggie's Centres), Jo Ashbridge (Founder & Director, AzuKo), Kirsty O'Brien - Governor (Stoneydown Park Primary School), Amos Goldreich (Director, Amos Goldreich Architecture), Dr. Lafina Diamandis (Presenter, Health Meets Home), Peter Clegg (Senior Partner, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios). Ticket sales will be donated to architecture charity, AzuKo (no. 1156354). AzuKo designs with disadvantaged communities and empowers them to create the world they dream of. Drinks and nibbles will be provided by Fat Macy’s; a social enterprise serving delicious home cooked food and dining experiences across London. The organisation trains and supports young Londoners living in temporary accommodation and homeless hostels, helping them to move into their own homes whilst gaining hospitality skills and work experience.
