Deborah Saunt and David Hills join Assemble, We Made That, Haworth Tompkins in Theatrum Mundi's Charrette: Can we design the conditions for culture?
The four architecture practices working on cultural infrastructures were invited to develop design responses addressing the key tensions identified during the three expert round tables that took place in 2016: mobility, determinacy, publicness, and value.
This series of events is organised by Theatrum Mundi and LSE Cities to debate issues raised by Sadiq Khan’s plans to create a Cultural Infrastructure plan for London, asking if and how the conditions for cultural production can be designed. They assembled over 50 artists, performers, architects, writers, urbanists, scholars and institutional leaders as well as a representative from the Greater London Authority’s Culture Team.
A working paper, compiling the ideas and questions raised during these discussions will be shared with the GLA’s Culture Team in April and developed into a full report for publication in September 2017.
