The Working City: Eindhoven, London, New York

18 June 17:45 - 20:45
Organized by: London Festival of Architecture
The Purcell Room
Southbank Centre


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: 


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; (Thom Aussems, Trudo)


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; (Andrew Kimball, Industry City);


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. (Gavin Poole, Here East & David Bickle, Hawkins Brown).


Followed by a panel debate, also including Fiona Fletcher Smith, Greater London Authority (GLA) and Jo Negrini, Croydon Council, and the launch of a LFA/GLA initiative to design integrated workspace and homes in London.
