We're excited to introduce the guest speaker Martin Knuijt who is the founder of OKRA, a dutch landscape and urban planning office. He worked for Croydon's masterplan and will give us some background information about his work and future implementation.
Short introduction: The ambition for Croydon is to turn the city district into London's 'third city', besides Westminster and the City of London. The assignment for Wellesley Road – Park Lane is to reshape the monstrous main road, splitting the centre in two, into a lively and liveable centre. In the plans of OKRA, Wellesley Road and Park Lane are transformed into a green core in the city that is easy to cross over and is connected to green 'urban rooms' beside it.
Speaker: Martin Knuijt, Nederland
Wednesday 26. March, 1pm
Venue: Room CE4-09, Central House
