The Architecture Foundation has launched a series of one-day seminars in London's Camden to find out more about how local people feel about the built environment. The seminars aim to encourage residents to visualise and understand their area, and to promote a wider sense of ownership, understanding and pride in their locality.
They will form part of Camden council's policy to promote local debate about the role of architecture in bringing about an urban renaissance.
The AF's new director, Rowan Moore, said about the programme: 'We are trying to do two things. First we want to improve awareness of the built environment in the area and, second, to learn from what people say.'
The project will be filmed as part of a documentary that will be used to showcase the project at the government's Urban Summit from 31 October to 1 November. For details call 020 7253 3334.
