Parks for the Future: an evolutionary approach to regeneration

20 Jun 2024


We spent a sunny summer evening at Crystal Palace Bowl for our London Festival of Architecture panel discussion Parks for the Future: an evolutionary approach to regeneration.

Our panelists provided an insight into the competing demands that fall on modern parks and discussed means of protecting parks and wildlife for future enjoyment through biodiverse planting, climate resilience, event programming, inclusivity and communication with local communities.
