UN/DER/REPRESENTED: DESIGNING LANDSCAPES / CITIES / TERRITORIES 

The first of a series of workshops focused on the speculative design of landscapes, cities and territories will take place this summer at the University of Greenwich. The 4-day workshop is planned from 23-26 July 2018 and is free and open to Year 12 students studying in London who will explore futures of their city. During the workshop students will work with experienced landscape architects, urban designers and architects to write urban strategies, develop large city models, and create a collective exhibition/publication.

The aims of the first workshop are to:

  • focus on the design of cities by young people who live in them;
  • design urban spaces by/with/for individuals and groups who are un/less-represented in current city-making processes [such as young, homeless, disabled, low income people, migrants and minorities];
  • explore un/less-professional approaches to design;

The first workshop will include support and speakers from:

  • Greater London Authority
  • Royal Parks
  • BNP Paribas
  • University of Greenwich

The workshop is free to attend. Lunch and travel will be provided.
