We would like to make a number of amendments to Clare Melhuish's article last week (aj 30.3.00). Firstly, the topic of the lecture was the artist's role in urban regeneration. Secondly, Wendy Shillam firmly believes that city centres should be made more attractive as places of residence, and that the fact that they are populated only by certain sectors of society should not be a matter for complacency. She would like to see more families being attracted to the inner-city. Finally, Shillam is a member of the riba and rtpi and a past chairman of the Association of Consultant Planners. She is thus well qualified to discuss the physical, social and economic aspects of urban regeneration. In fact this is a speciality for which her practice is recognised.
aj 9.3.00 should have credited dla Architecture as joint architect of the Millennium Square in Leeds.
