Inclusive Spaces

The Bartlett’s Inclusive Spaces event series explores equity, diversity and inclusion in the built environment.

The buildings and cities we create can empower people and improve lives – or they can exclude and disempower us. 

In this bi-monthly event series, we inspired conversations about how we can think differently to create more equitable spaces, inclusive experiences and diverse cities and societies.

In each event, we delved into the latest ideas and research from The Bartlett’s leading thinkers in the built environment field. We explored disability, race, gender, LGBTQ+ and many other dimensions of diversity and discover how they intersect with built environments around the world.

Past events

Preventing ‘ruins of regeneration’ through youth-led co-design

This event explored the role youth-led design can have addressing the negative consequences regeneration has on young people in East London.

The panel showed how design thinking can be leveraged by young people in the local area to make regeneration work better for young East Londoners, and how their design as part of the Fuse project came from a consideration of what 'prosperity' means to young East Londoners and how it will support young people to thrive in the careers they want.

Why is cultural heritage under threat in London?

This event examines the nexus between ethnic minority spaces, London heritage policies (both local and city-wide), and the creative industries. It shares recent research findings on what is described as gentrification through 'hipsterfication', and its impact on ethnic minority spaces in London's East End – notably Brick Lane's Banglatown.

Parallels with other 'ethnic majority' are also be explored, in collaboration with the Just Space Network, an informal alliance of around 80 community groups, campaigns and concerned independent organisations acting as a voice for Londoners at grass-roots level.

Rethinking disability and built space

This interactive workshop session will start from the work of disabled artists, designers, campaigners and scholars. We will discuss how engaging with disability at the intersections can be both a creative design generator, and a key means to challenge and change what is ‘normal’ in the design of the built environment.

In architecture and related fields in the built environment, disability as a concept – and disabled people – continue to be predominantly framed through a set of outdated and functionalist categories (wheelchair user, blind, deaf, etc.).

There is still a widespread assumption that ‘disability’ is unable to bring any kind of creativity to the design of human spaces.

Since 2008, the DisOrdinary Architecture Project has been challenging this assumption by promoting new practice for the built environment, led by the creativity and experiences of disabled artists.

By finding innovative and enjoyable ways of bringing together disabled creatives with built environment students, educators, researchers and practitioners, DisOrdinary Architecture is co-developing new forms of valuing, and designing with, the rich bio- and neurodiversity of our many different ways of being in the world.

Rethinking architecture to create social value

This session will be led by award-winning architect and Bartlett alumna Tumpa Husna Yasmin Fellows.

In part one, we’ll explore inclusive design methods, and answer key questions: How can architecture enable the voices of underrepresented communities to enable spatial justice? How can architects design for social value creation in places, buildings and neighbourhoods? How can designing inclusive spaces help us respond to the climate injustice? We’ll bring these issues to life with  case study projects from the practise Our Building Design, which enabled marginalised local voices to be heard through community participation and evidence-based research, tackling complex social and environmental issues faced by the disadvantaged communities.

Part two will expose the urgent issue of diversity in the architecture profession. FAME collective is a research-based platform responding to a lack of understanding of how race and gender affect practitioners, young scholars and students in architecture and the built environment. We’ll explore how these professions need to diversify, in order to reflect the diversity of the local communities they are serving.

Levelling the playing field

With over 30 million children forcibly displaced across the globe, can play spaces provide places of refuge, equity and inclusion?

Emergencies of forced displacement are prevalent across the globe, as of 2019, 40% of the 79 million people forced out of their homes were children. However, research often ignores the plight of urban refugee children who have limited access to resources and rights within the built environment.

Using Kitengela, a peri-urban town in Kenya as a case study, we’ll explore how play spaces can become significant places of safety, social integration and developmental progress.

Through the process of storytelling and digital mapping, we’ll look at the material and spatial characteristics which promote the naturally occurring play culture – while also foregrounding the issues that prevent both refugee Congolese children and host Kenyan children from accessing play in an inclusive, equitable manner.

This work has been developed by Marie Williams, based in the UCL Institute of Global Prosperity, through the process of co-design, in collaboration with local researchers and over 200 participants in 2020.

About the speaker

Marie Williams is a senior product development engineer, designer and academic who has adopted co-design principles to collaboratively create contextual solutions to a variety of social and environmental challenges our world faces. A finalist to the Institute of Engineering Female engineer of the year, her playful career has seen her collaboratively create innovative solutions within a range of industries, ranging from aerospace to nuclear building design, to corporate social responsibility and most importantly play.

In 2016 she launched Dream Networks and began a journey to enable inclusive play4all children through the process of co-design. She is a PHD student at the Bartlett Institute of Global Prosperity and an exchange scholar at Yale School of Architecture. Through her situated, participatory co-design research project, she hopes to generate accessible and tailored play solutions that enable children from the Kenyan and Refugee community in Kitengela thrive through play.
