The Art of the Mix: COVID-Proofing Existing & Future Developments
What do resilient and beloved places have in common? There are many aspects, but it all comes down to the human experience. A place is tied to social and human constructs. Its success is about the feelings and memories it evokes, and the type of individuals it brings together.

Just as the pandemic is redefining how we live, it is changing our perceptions of place and challenges us to rethink the design and functionality of our built environment. Once fit-for-purpose buildings will face new demands post-pandemic, it’ll raise questions around usage and typology. We’ll be forced to consider how we reconfigure existing assets and shape future ones to better withstand crisis and change.

Please tune in and join our placemaking and design experts as they address this and discuss how mixed-use developments can be transformed to embody a higher level of resiliency in the future.

Can't attend live? You should still register! We'll be sending out the recording to all registrants.

The content will touch on:

1. How do people want to live in the new world and what type of assets will come forward as a result?

2. Redefining socialising: What does social distancing mean for the retail and hospitality industry that is built to create engaging, social settings?

3. What type of design strategies can be used for future-proofing mixed-use developments?

4. How can a cultural-led regeneration approach help foster social connections between people and places?
