Holly Lewis of the multi-disciplinary design and architecture practice will be speaking at Icon's House of Culture during Clerkenwell Design Week about We Made That's creative approach to localised regeneration in the context of public sector cuts
With backgrounds in architecture and interaction design, Holly Lewis and Oliver Goodhall established their Hackney-based multidisciplinary studio in 2006.
One of the most exciting young practices on the London design scene, We Made That was nominated for a 2014 Icon Award, following a year in which it prepared the Streatham Street Manual for Lambeth council, a publication that sets out an approach to high-street renewal of the south London area, and completed a streetscape regeneration scheme on a small budget in Walthamstow.
All the studio's work is public, and it uses research and engagement to focus on the relationship between local communities and creative practice. At present, it is developing a public realm masterplan for Central Street in Islington and construction is underway on building-frontage improvements in Croydon.
At this talk, Holly Lewis will discuss the practice's creative approach to localised regeneration in the context of public sector cuts.
Holly Lewis will be speaking at Icon's House of Culture in Clerkenwell at 6pm on Thursday, 21 May. Click here to RSVP to the event and click here for the full line-up of talks, from GamFratesi to Michael Young
