The Architecture Foundation is calling on architects to take part in its second roadshow, this time in Tower Hamlets, where they will participate in public workshops to generate ideas for run-down housing estates, focusing on open spaces surrounding homes. The theme is housing and its associated amenities.
Events will be run for local schools, proposals will be exhibited and a summary symposium will look at issues and ways forward.
Practices must send profiles, cvs and reasons for wanting to take part. The Architecture Foundation will choose those committed to public participation, with an interest in housing issues and the ability to communicate well.
Dates are to be finalised but initial submissions must be made to the foundation by 27 July. Design teams will be selected in August, workshops will be in September or October, and the exhibition and symposium held in November.
The first roadshow took place in Hammersmith and Fulham.
