Event details

SPAB Spring Lecture Series 2021: Transformations Part II
Join us this spring for a further series of talks continuing our theme of transformation. Through a mixture of recent projects and current thinking about heritage, sustainability and conservation, we consider physical change and new uses for old buildings on the one hand and, on the other, the power of conservation projects to transform places and communities. We will also look at how new ways of thinking about heritage can transform the way people engage with old buildings and historic places.  

From Granby Four Streets to Spitalfields: community led regeneration
Presented by Fran Edgerley, Assemble
4 March 2021, 12:00 - 13:00 (GMT)
Live Online Lecture
£5 pp - SPAB members
£6 pp - Non-members

The “Granby Four Streets” project in Liverpool brought architecture and design collective Assemble and Toxteth residents wide recognition for an approach to regeneration that placed a community’s affection for its local heritage, and local people’s talents and resourcefulness, at its heart. Over the last decade they have worked together to realise a sustainable and incremental vision for the Granby area, including affordable housing, public space and new enterprise opportunities, winning the 2015 Turner Prize along the way. Fran Edgerley, a founding partner of Assemble, will discuss Granby Four Streets and other current projects, which demonstrate the potential and success of community led regeneration.
