4x4 is a unique opportunity to engage in the debate on how we are remaking the places we live in. 2009 is a good time to take stock and look ahead with a ‘Back to Basics’series taking a fresh and inventive look at the challenges we face.
At 4x4 you can hear architects, engineers, urbanists, planners, environmentalists, academics, artists, developers, politicians and policy makers who are shaping our environment.
4x4 Making Places 2009 will be held at the Leslie Silver Building, Lecture Theatre 2, Leeds Metropolitan University, Woodhouse Lane, Leeds, LS1 8HE (curved glass entrance).
Each session has four speakers with time for debate.
