Spaceagency's director Sarah Manning will be discussing the role of Design in the public space at this year's Clerkenwell design week, chaired by Independent journalist David Michon.
Please join us at the talks space in Spa Fields (next to the Design Fields exhibition) at 1.30 pm on Thursday the 25th May.
Committees plan our cities and architects shape our buildings, but who helps humans navigate their way through this manufactured environment? One could argue that successful architecture is self explanatory; so are public signage and design elements aimed directly at those using the space really that important? Joining the discussion are Sarah Manning of wayfinding studio Spaceagency, designer Morag Myerscough and Oliver Goodhall, co-founder of We Made That, who will be considering what makes great public design – clarity, simplicity, imagination or innovation?
