We're proud to present: "MADE PLACES"
Tuesday 6th November from 630pm
What role does or should the built environment play in connecting, harmonising and supporting communities? We'll hear from some of the leading names in architecture along with place-makers of community to better understand the role that architecture is expected to play in today's world.
On 6th November we'll uncover some of the most prolific and lesser known developments and buildings that have helped shape a community.
