The Fourth Garden City Lecture will be on Wed 13th May in the Hawthorne Theatre, WGC. Dr Nick Falk whose URBED co-op were the winners of the Wolfson Economics Prize 2014 for proposals to build new Garden Cities, will be the speaker. The event is a joint promotion with the WGC Society.
Especially relevant are the questions Nick faced for the Wolfson Economics Prize submission including:
Where will our children live?
Is the answer to keep making our towns bigger or should we build completely new towns?
Will the future bring a decent home for the few but not the many?
Should they be like Welwyn Garden City?
How can we afford the roads, railways and schools?
What about jobs or will it mean long costly commutes?
Solutions that emerged from Nick's work are startling and exciting, and will provide the audience with food for thought over how WGC could respond to demands for a major expansion of its housing.
You will soon be able to book your seats in the theatre via the Campus West website, by phone or by calling into the box office. We will let you know when booking opens.
