Re-imagining the Garden City
We are working with the RIBA on a design ideas competition called, ‘Re-Imagining the Garden City’.
This design ideas competition aims to discover new design approaches for a modern garden city to meet the needs of the 21st century, whilst recapturing the pioneering spirit that led to the development of the world’s first garden city at Letchworth Garden City. We hope that this will help shift the debate more towards place making as part of the discussion concerning major new housing development and new settlements.
Initial Responses to the design competition
