Our annual Citymakers conference this year will explore and debate different facets of the picturesque in the design and planning of cities.
Please join us for our third annual Citymakers conference which will be a hybrid event this year - offering the opportunity to participate via Zoom or to attend in person at our studios in Southwark. The conference will be held over three Thursday sessions this autumn.
Some may think the picturesque is outdated and irrelevant, easy to dismiss as a purely visual discipline. But might the strategies it pioneered - of legibility, particularity and intrigue - have value in the shaping of the contemporary city? Perhaps the picturesque still holds some clues as to how to reconcile the ever-increasing technical, economic and environmental imperatives with the need to design places for people?
When registering for the event, you will have the option to attend the online event or register your interest to attend in person.
