Helping universities to harness the power of public realm
Are universities following the best development model to compete in a global environment? LDA Design’s Bernie Foulkes will discuss at this year’s Education Estates conference in Manchester.
Increasingly, UK cities are recognising their need to compete as places to attract investment, visitors and businesses. Universities and colleges can contribute massively to this growth, becoming destinations in their own right.
At this year’s Education Estates conference, LDA Design board director Bernie Foulkes will talk about how harnessing the power of place-making and public realm can help UK universities drive change and redefine their role in their host cities, removing barriers between research, education and public engagement.
Bernie is a masterplanner, urban designer and landscape architect with nearly 30 years’ experience in regeneration, environmental planning and design. He is currently helping University College London create a second campus away from its historic Bloomsbury setting in The Queen Elizabeth Park.
