The Future City Debate: City Visions

Presented by the Fred Roche Foundation

Thursday 8 May / 7pm / 7pm / Free

Pre-booking essential via Eventbrite

 

In December 2013, to complement the Future City exhibition, we held two Pecha Kucha style talks that explored both the history of Milton Keynes and it's possible future. What Does our Future Look Like? brought together several key figures from a variety of sectors to present their personal visions for Milton Keynes in under five minutes. The attending audiences were then asked to vote for their favourites. This event brings together the three selected speakers - Julia UptonProf. Gerd Kortuem and Linda Inoki - to expand upon their 'city vision'.

The Fred Roche Foundation celebrates the life of Fred Roche (1931-1992), who led the team in the 1970s who built the new city of Milton Keynes.  The Foundation endeavors to keep his spirit of creative exploration, innovation and vision alive in Milton Keynes.    

 

He believed in the power – or rather the duty – of architecture to improve society.  If Milton Keynes is one person’s creation, it was Fred Roche’s” (Stephen Bayley, The Guardian)
