Glass-House Chats are monthly hour-long online spaces for conversation and connection, to ask questions and explore ideas, approaches and methods, share learning and meet others. They are free sessions for anyone interested, and are kept to around 10 participants to allow for open dialogue.

About this Session

Co-design brings diverse people and interests together to respond to both individual and collective needs and aspirations. More and more, it is being seen as a valuable tool by those leading placemaking projects.

But what happens when a design process and project has been completed and the designers, developers and builders leave? What are the legacies of co-design journeys not only in terms of the built outcomes and the places created, but also within the communities involved in shaping them? 

In this month’s Chat, we’ll explore not only the why and how of co-design, but also the legacies they leave behind.

About the Series

The sessions will be chaired by The Glass-House team, who will briefly introduce the theme and then open the floor for an informal and open discussion among participants.

To ensure space for meaningful discussion, places are limited to a small group. Key discussion points will be collated and shared after each session, and Chatham house rules are kept when sharing any points from the event.
