Archio and the Bartlett present Community Power Tools, an evening to explore the role of community engagement in the process of housing design.
The students of UG10 at the Bartlett have been investigating the micro and macro themes around ‘home’, ‘identity’ and ‘community’. They have been engaging with people outside architecture who are commissioning housing and community projects, writing policy and shaping government strategy.
UG10 have developed their own toolkits for community engagement which they will present to a panel of experts within the field and then open up a conversation about best practice. The aim of this event is to highlight the power of good communication around architecture and the role local people can therefore play in their built environment. These skills are not always developed by architects but are vitally important to ensure we design the best spaces and places for the future growth and development of cities.
