The Working City: Eindhoven, New York and London\

Organised by the London Festival of Architecture

We are delighted to be speaking and sponsoring this event with Here East.

An opportunity to look at the changing face of cities and the nature of work, with a debate on how we balance the competing needs for land use while accommodating the type of jobs, industry and infrastructure needed for a healthy, functioning city and economy.

The event will include presentations on:

London’s Here East, 1.2 million square feet of commercial space for the innovative business and maker community, being fashioned out of 2012 Olympic Press and Broadcast Centre.

The reinvention of the former Philips’ factories in Eindhoven as mixed-use neighbourhoods, blending a wide range of cultural and commercial uses with mixed income homes, leisure uses and open space;

Industry City, New York, where the revitalisation of 6 million square feet of 19th century workspace is carefully balancing existing manufacturing tenants with those centered on the creative and innovation economy;

Followed by a panel debate, also including the GLA and Croydon Council, and the launch of a LFA/GLA initiative to design integrated workspace and homes in London.
