Building back better and building beautiful have to be grounded in ‘genius loci’ – the spirit and harmony of the places and localities in which we are creating well-designed homes and delivering the vital infrastructure to renew or create strong communities.

With an eye to economic as well as social and cultural renewal, Localis’s 2021 placemaking workstream, ‘Building for Renewal’ will examine through research and events the following key themes:

  • The role of housing and infrastructure in promoting opportunity and prosperity for all
  • The role of investment in place in leading renewal
  • The role of housing and infrastructure in supporting the most vulnerable and engaging with society
  • The role of planning in creating successful and sustainable communities
