A research and development project has been funded by the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 as part of a two-year Fellowship in the Built Environment. It looks to evolve the simple rules, conditions and leadership necessary to deliver a viable human habitat within the context of an evolved planning system. Its prime purpose is to make a big difference by clearly showing a different way of dealing with complex urban environments in such a way that gives us far better outcomes. Here, practice will lead theory to offer us a strong and realistic possibility for urban growth and change.
The Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) at the University College London has agreed to host the programme under the mentorship of Professor Michael Batty, chair of the centre.
