The population in most of our major cities will continue to grow in the years to come, while our ways of working and shopping are changing beyond recognition.

How will we accommodate this transformation? How can we revitalise our urban centres as well as making sure the centre is connected with the wider city region? In this symposium we explore how investment in infrastructure can help deliver more housing, regeneration and economic growth – and connect places and people to each other and to opportunities.

Speakers include:

  • Jacob Kurek, Partner Architect, Henning Larsen
  • Pat Bartoli, Head of City Centre Regeneration, Manchester City Council
  • Stephen Willacy, Chief City Architect, Municipality of Aarhus
  • Sarah Mann,  Head of Programmes, Design Council
  • Paul Richards, Director of Development and Regeneration, Stockport Council
  • Gary Jackson, CEO, DeTrafford
  • Lasse Scheide, Architect, Moving Spaces IVS

Chair: Kasper de Graaf, Director of Images&Co and Partnerships Director, Design Manchester
