RIBA + VitrA Talk: Rethink Regenerate

Join us in Bristol to discuss how the regeneration of community spaces adds to both social sustainability and positive local identity

Our 2024 RIBA + VitrA Talk: Rethink Regenerate talks invite leading and emerging architects to explore architecture as a catalyst for positive urban and social change.

Reusing our existing building stock is one of the most sustainable decisions we can make when considering urban development. Join us in Bristol to discuss the value of using heritage assets to regenerate community spaces and the impact that has on local identity. We’ll explore how we can best manage the places that matter most to residents and communities.

You’ll hear our expert panel debate the benefits and challenges of sustainable regeneration at a range of project scales.

Chair: Simon Malam, Conservation Architect and Director of Donald Insall Associates

Panellists: Lucy Barron, Director of Heritage at BiBO; Graciela Moreno, Director at Prior+Partners; Emma Birkett, Heritage Director at Rochdale Development Agency and Project Director Rochdale Town Hall Restoration Project and Geoff Rich, Partner and Director of Heritage and Creative Reuse at Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios.

This event is part of our Challenge: Rethink series of talks for the RIBA + VitrA Partnership.
