How do you redesign complex sites or regenerate neglected urban spaces? How can a city’s council drive growth and renewal? How can you create architectural landmarks that become genuine catalysts for urban regeneration?
This RIBA +VitrA Talk explores these questions and looks at the changing face of Birmingham, mapping the city through key case studies. Hear more about how Birmingham City Council intends to reshape this city in their Future City Plan, one which could create a fairer, greener, and more inclusive urban landscape. The panel also addresses more broadly what it means to regenerate a city, and how the current economic, societal and environmental climate has presented challenges to enabling real change.
