Tom Greenall and Jane Wong win funding from the RIBA Research FundDirector Tom Greenall and Jane Wong have won funding from the RIBA Research Fund for their research 'Towards Spatial Justice: A guide for achieving meaningful participation in co-design processes'. They were one of five research projects chosen to be supported by the Fund this year.Their research posits co-design both as a powerful design tool to address intersectional issues of the built environment, and as an irreplaceable civic process in its generation, exchange and application of collective knowledge. It seeks to assess existing forms of 'community engagement', identify current challenges that hinder meaningful collaborative design process, and speculate ways for co-design to be integrated into design processes at different scales.Tags: RIBA Research Fund research funding spatial justice co-design community engagement participation collaborative design design processShare:
DSDHA’s radical redevelopment for the National Youth Theatre is granted planning approval
The National Youth Theatre is a vital part of Great Britain’s cultural infrastructure, boasting alumni of the likes of Daniel Craig, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Rosamund Pike, and our renovation will enable it to hugely increase its capacity to provide free and affordable opportunities through its award-winning social inclusion programmes that champion diversity and creativity.
A new pavilion in distinctive green glazed brick will provide a fully accessible entrance and welcoming front door from Holloway Road into the remodelled headquarters, where a new 200-seat studio ‘workshop’ theatre and new rehearsal and co-working spaces will allow them to double the number of young people coming into the building. Futures plans for a new Pocket Park, working in collaboration with the London Borough of Islington and the GLA, will bring much needed local and environmental benefits.
The project has received the largest funding grant of £2M from the Mayor’s Good Growth Fund and building work for the £4.45M redevelopment will commence in May, with the opening planned for Summer 2021.Share:
