Now in its eleventh year, 4x4 making places brings people together to learn about and debate place making, with leading practitioners.

This year 4x4 investigates numbers, the hidden force behind decisions in place making. From size, proportion, cost, value, efficiency, turnover, time and footfall, to energy consumption, policies, finance, budgets and appraisals, the numbers must “work”!
