Places for InterACTion

30 June 2022

18:30 -21:30

“The city is like a great house, and the house in its turn a small city.” Leon Battista Alberti

Alberti reminds us that only scale separates the shared function of the city and home. Both should be designed to support human interaction.

Proctor and Matthews Architects will be launching ‘Places for InterACTion’, the latest edition of their annual ‘&’ series of publications. The paper explores the studios approach to urban design and examines how buildings are brought together to create meaningful places for interaction within the city.

From the first phase of the Landmark Riverside Sunderland Masterplan to a vibrant new community hub in east London, the publication will chart the practices’ current work alongside a series of diverse essays by contributing authors.

We invite you to join us at Reference Point, library, bookshop and bar to celebrate our first in-person event since the start of the pandemic where there will also be an opportunity to collect a copy of last year’s publication. The discussion will be led by Stephen Proctor, Andrew Matthews and guest speaker, Stephen Willacy, Chief City Architect at Aarhus City Council (2012-2020).
