The recently launched Placemaking & Housing working group would like to warmly invite you to its first event: Afterwork Placemaking Pils On Friday, November 6th at 17h (CEST/GMT+2).
This will be an online event where while drinking our favorite drink (in our favorite chair, behind our favorite laptop ;)) we get together and share inspiring projects, challenging moments, tools, and mechanisms for building inclusive, sustainable, and high-quality housing & neighborhoods. This time we will hear from projects in Manchester, Vienna, Barcelona, Puerto Rico and London. Read more about the projects in the files on the page.
As Placemaking and Housing working group, we have given the topic quite some thought and realized there are many things we could discuss. For each event, we’d like to narrow the topic down, in order to keep a specific focus. This time - together with you - we’d like to look at projects in low-income residential neighborhoods and address the following questions:
- Which spatial elements/projects in the neighborhood (e.g. public space interventions, artistic projects, amenities, or services) can address questions regarding the quality of life for its residents?
- What is needed for a placemaking project to grow from a pilot project into an (economically, socially, and ecologically) sustainable project?
- How can we prevent placemaking projects from contributing to gentrification in the area?
After a couple of short project pitches, we split up into different rooms, where we can discuss these projects and related questions in greater detail. In the end, we gather again in the main room and share what we’ve learned.
The Pils will be a starting point for building a community of people interested in questions concerning housing and placemaking. Together we would grow a body of inspiration, knowledge and know-how, and take housing and placemaking to the next level.
Everyone who feels they know of or are involved in a project (in progress or completed) that somehow answers or helps reflecting on the previously cited questions, is invited to propose a pitch (max. 5 minutes). Everyone who is interested is welcome to join the event and become part of the discussion.
