Despite the rain Fluid held a series of Culture Mile pop-ups last week with the help of the Year Here fellows. As part of their ‘bootcamp’, the Year Here fellows were introduced to the world of community engagement and placemaking through Soundings / Fluid’s work before going out to the public to get a real feel for it. Some of the fellows will be working on a Soundings project over the next couple of months.

Building Futures reconvened last night for the first time since becoming independent of the RIBA last year. Around 50 professionals and thinkers from across the built environment, including architects, engineers, strategic advisors, research, academic and environmental practitioners, gathered to talk about the long-term urban future of the UK. All discussions of politics, economics, and any other foreseeable social trauma that may occur within the next ten to fifteen years was firmly banned, with the world in 2030 set as the minimum horizon.
