Edge: Periphery

07 October 09:30 - 19:30
Organized by: UCL Urban Laboratory / Folkestone Triennial 2017
Venue: , Here East
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
E20 3BS

Jill Magid, Do Ho Suh and Assemble are among the speakers on the second day of EDGE - a series of three events presented as part of Folkestone Triennial 2017, exploring the concept of situated practice in contemporary art, architecture and urbanism. 


Bringing together practitioners and thinkers at three 'edge' locations connected by the High Speed 1 railway, participants will look at the challenges of creative place-making from the perspective of architecture, urbanism and planning.


For the second event, we consider the areas that environs of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Investment for the 2012 Games brought rapid development to the previously neglected Stratford area. Here East, within the former press and broadcasting centre of the Games, is envisaged as a cluster of innovators and digital makers, whilst the Stratford Waterside development will bring new institutions including the V&A, Sadler's Wells, London College of Fashion, and UCL.


Keynote: Jill Magid and Do Ho Suh

Other speakers: Assemble, Jan Boelen, Jane Rendell, Kreider + O’Leary, MUF, Oreet Ashery, Public Works, SPACE, and Stephen Pritchard


Day tickets: £15 / £8 concession

Bundle ticket for all three events: £35
