As part of the Kent Design programme we led a study tour around East London looking at medium to high density housing. Focusing on a range of issues such as housing typologies, public realm design and integration of mixed uses, we explored how such development can successfully integrate into the wider urban fabric. With a mix of participants including planning professionals, architects, urban designers and landscape specialists, this was a great opportunity to gain insight from various perspectives surrounding design at density. We are now exploring themes for future study tours and where these could take place.
