Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.
The past decade has seen an accelerating shift from single-occupier offices to communal workspaces. The change, led by technology startups and creative businesses, is driven by a growing desire among creative entrepreneurs to place themselves in strongly-bonded communities where they can access expertise, networks and friendship. This has led architects to evolve new kinds of workspace solution that prioritise the formation of relationships and support community activities.
The current appearance of "co-living" as a residential equivalent to "co-working" poses a new set of architectural challenges. How does the design of residential developments need to change to address the new demands for community? Are there historic patterns we can draw on? What is the relationship between management and design?
This talk brings together architects and experts in designing community environments to identify the new challenges and explore possible solutions. Full speaker details will be confirmed in the first week of June.
The event is hosted and curated by The Trampery, one of London's most acclaimed workspace developers who recently announced Fish Island Village, a partnership with Peabody to develop the city's first integrated live-work community for creative entrepreneurs.
