The Glass-House WEdesign event series Relearning Place explored the concept of relearning, and how this approach might encourage people to think differently and to affect culture, policy and practice in design and placemaking. 

So how do we reconsider what we think we know about place and placemaking as we adapt to external factors of change?

What do we have to unlearn to enable us to relearn

Is relearning a continual process for places?

Relearning Place was The Glass-House’s 2022/23 WEdesign series which combined free, interactive events and co-design activities taking place in person in Glasgow, Sheffield, London and Newcastle, with a range of online events and Think Pieces. 

This booklet brings together the voices from across the series from all four in-person events alongside our online Debate and Glass-House Chat, and features excerpts from this series’ Think Pieces and student blogs capturing the events. WEdesign 2022/23’s in-person events were held in partnership with UCL Bartlett School of Planning, The Glasgow School of Art’s, Glasgow School of Art’s Mackintosh School of Architecture, Newcastle University’s School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape and The University of Sheffield School of Architecture.
