Members of the Bartlett contributed to January’s issue of Architectural Design, which brings into focus notions of regeneration within the specific context of London: what does the term actually mean, how has it been applied and is it being applied?

Bartlett professors, Matthew Carmona (Planning), Murray Fraser (Architecture), and Michael Batty (CASA), contributed insights into political engagement in urban design; the urban impact of economic globalisation in the capital and urban planning and the need to identify key points where small change can lead to massive change for the better.

Two other articles written by Hilary Powell and Edward Denison, from the Bartlett School of Architecture looked at the Battersea and Nine Elms areas and an artist’s approach to regeneration and place naming.

UCL Geography’s Matthew Gandy also contributed an article on the reinvention of Bankside as a luxurious enclave for the internationally rich.

Founded in 1930, Architectural Design is an influential and prestigious publication. It combines the currency and topicality of a newsstand journal with the rigour and production qualities of a book. With an almost unrivalled reputation worldwide, it is consistently at the forefront of cultural thought and design.
