4x4 making places 2004
puts spotlight on "Masterplan Mania"
Masterplan mania is the theme of the 4th series of 4x4, which will run
every Thursday evening during March 2004.
(Theres a lot of it about, and it can mean anything from utopian
aspiration to any scheme with more than a dozen houses, and the theory
and practice would benefit from more discussion and understanding!)
The successful format of 4x4 brings together 4 speakers who are experienced
and involved in making the places we live in. The debates bring in members
of the public and a wide range of professionals, policy makers and developers,
with over 200 people attending each session.
The presentations start at 6pm at the Brunswick Building, Leeds Metropolitan
University School of Architecture and admission is free.
They are followed by open discussion and debate between speakers and
audience with a leading authority in the chair.
Alsop Architects, Farrell & Co, Koetter Kim, and Alan Simpson, Head
of Urban Renaissance from Yorkshire Forward are among this years
heavyweight line up.
The first session Whats it all about? will explore
examples and definitions of masterplanning. The second week, Getting
started how do we make it happen? will progress to the
obstacles faced when putting it into practice.
The third session, Experience what can we learn?
is based on the experience of masterplans in practice and
what happens when circumstances change. The final presentation, The
bigger picture are we making places to last? on 25th March,
looks at the longer term and wider picture of making sustainable places.
Also taking part are Carey Jones Architects, John Thorp (Leeds Civic
Architect), Irena Bauman (Bauman Lyons), Maud Marshall (Bradford URC
Director), Tom Lonsdale (Camlin Lonsdale Landscape Architects), Mark
Rider (ISIS) and Bill Dunster.
The focus of 4x4 is the nature of towns and cities and their repair,
improvement, quality and change. 4x4 will again have a high profile
this year and that will benefit from the ongoing partnership with organisations
including regional development agency Yorkshire Forward.
