UCL Urban Laboratory Co-Director Dr Andrew Harris will take part in this Clerkenwell Design Week panel on how developments in London can and should preserve creative workspaces in the city.

Organised in collaboration with Brintons, the debate will explore the critical issue of how developers, architects and activists must join forces to preserve and develop London's creative workspaces, and endeavour to find commercially viable, sustainable solutions to the increasing affordability challenges facing the city's designers, makers and artists, if the capital is to retain its creative capital.

To attend, please RSVP on Eventbrite.
