Character + Local Distinctiveness

Wednesday 14 April 2021 - 18:00 to 19:30
Zoom

FREE

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 anywherevilles to somewherevilles?
