Design, integrity and place-making: research findings from our Greenwich Peninsula forum

Attendees found our research round tables at our September forum extremely useful both for learning purposes and networking.

Lewisham Council, Tower Hamlets Council, Redbridge Council, Amber Infrastructure, Stride Treglown Architects, master-panning consultancy David Lock Associates and leading international architectural firm Roger Stirk Harbour, were among the organisations that took part in our forum looking at station place-making and retail, joined up planning in mobility and housing and the regeneration of town centres.

Key questions posed to our attendees were around good practice in creating new sustainable districts and regenerating existing town centres. The workshop also looked at the UK government's 'Building beautiful, building better' campaign and whether the term 'beauty' is helpful when considering the standard of design in our built environment and the challenge of creating space around high-density living.
