Character + Local Distinctiveness
This event aims to sharpen our understanding of what we mean by character and local distinctiveness.
Is it architecture and the shape of buildings? Details? Materials or colours?
Is it about the shape of streets? Is it about the people who live and work there?
And most importantly how do we change nowherevilles to somewherevilles?
