The debate is architecture education organisation Open-City’s first Open Debate and will take place on 17 September in advance of the Open House London Weekend which it also runs.
Chaired by BBC special correspondent Razia Iqbal and featuring a panel of key Londoners the debate will consider how the built environment is evolving and will look at public realm place-making, sustainable community development and the challenge of what is good design.
They will discuss whether the capital is suffering from too many homogenous housing estates or high streets or whether we are experiencing a revival in creative architecture and community spirit.
Founding director of Open-City Victoria Thorntons said: "Our inaugural Open Debate is a great opportunity to open up a discussion on the development of London to all the stakeholders of the city and hear their championing and contrasting points of view.
"It continues Open House London’s over-arching aim of highlighting the value of well-designed places in making a liveable and vibrant city, and the role everyone plays within it."
Tickets for the event will be allocated through a ballot running between mid-August and mid-September. To apply click here.
