In response to Sadiq Khan’s pledge to establish a Public Space Charter, two evening discussions at the Garden Museum ask what kind of spaces London should be creating to foster its public life by both day and night.
From facilitating economic growth, to fostering cultural life and countering the effects of extreme weather, the demands placed on London’s public spaces are growing ever more complex and onerous. At the same time, the increasing reliance on private companies to build and manage our public realm has become a subject of fierce debate. In this rapid-fire event, ten leading designers, writers and campaigners propose bold ideas for inclusion in the London Public Space Charter.
