Venice Takeaway Debate
The Working Village: A live think-tank exploring the making of a radical entrepreneurial village
Date: Thursday 14 March 2013
Venue: Lecture hall
For Venice Takeaway (the British Pavilion at the Venice Biennale), architect and urban designer Darryl Chen argued that audacious urban planning can spur entrepreneur-led economic growth. Against a backdrop of failing high streets and dying neighbourhoods, this debate will ask whether there is a radical way of putting planning in the service of the economy. Could the Localism Act be a mechanism to spark growth? How radical can or should we be in rethinking how we draw plans for our cities? A cross-disciplinary panel considers Chen’s proposal for an entrepreneurial working village.
Darryl Chen (Tomorrow’s Thoughts Today); with Wouter Vanstiphout (Crimson), Beatrice Galilee (Lisbon Triennale/Domus), Finn Williams (Common Office/Croydon Council), Adam Scott (FreeState), Paul Evans (UK Regeneration), Levent Kerimol (GLA).
