new socialist village


Darryl Chen, 03 03 13


Darryl Chen of Tomorrow’s Thoughts Today will be chairing a live thinktank as part of the Venice Takeaway: Ideas to Change British Architecture. The event draws together experts from the fields of urbanism, planning, branding and development economics to explore the making of a radical entrepreneurial village on the outskirts of London. The event takes as its provocation the New [Socialist] Village project featured at the British Pavilion for the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale, and currently being exhibited at RIBA London.

Comprising the thinktank is: Wouter Vanstiphout (Crimson); Beatrice Galilee (Lisbon Triennale/Domus/BBC), Finn Williams (Croydon Council/Commonoffice); Adam Scott (FreeState); Dr Paul Evans (UK Regeneration); and Levent Kerimol (GLA/DesignForLondon).
