SPAB – From Granby Four Streets to Spitalfields: Community Led Regeneration
4 March - 12:00 - 13:00£6
The “Granby Four Streets” project in Liverpool brought architecture and design collective Assemble and Toxteth residents wide recognition for an approach to regeneration that placed a community’s affection for its local heritage, and local people’s talents and resourcefulness, at its heart. Over the last decade they have worked together to realise a sustainable and incremental vision for the Granby area, including affordable housing, public space and new enterprise opportunities, winning the 2015 Turner Prize along the way. Fran Edgerley, a founding partner of Assemble, will discuss Granby Four Streets and other current projects, which demonstrate the potential and success of community led regeneration.
