Panel debate: How well are we doing at wellbeing and well buildings?

Before climate change shot up the political and social agenda thanks to schoolgirl activist Greta Thunberg and the Extinction Rebellion, the property industry had already started to raise its game on ESG and social impact. But the focus was largely on commercial property. That is changing rapidly as mixed-use, community-led schemes gain traction. So, what impact will social impact have on resi-led, mixed use development? How should we measure wellbeing and well buildings? Will the sector walk the walk as well as talk the talk?

Design challenge: Visions of an intergenerational, resi-led mixed-use future

Residential-led, mixed-use schemes are being hailed as the solution to both the retail and housing crises. To date, the focus has largely been on redeploying redundant retail space both on the high street and in shopping centres. In the future, however, schemes will be mixed-use by design. They will also be intergenerational, multi-tenure and full of smart-tech.

We challenged some of the UK’s top architects to come up with their visions of the resi-led, intergenerational, tech-driven, mixed-use schemes of the future. In this dynamic session, they will pitch their visions to an expert panel and the RESI audience. The expert panel will debate the pros and cons of each scheme and deliver their verdicts. But ultimately, it will be up to the RESI audience to vote for what they think is the most compelling vision.

Closing keynote: Come what May. Life inside No.10

Ever wondered what life was like inside No.10 in the last days of Theresa May’s premiership? Here’s your chance to find out. The former PM’s spin doctor reveals the bad behaviour and betrayals that broke the Brexit deal, and tells us what he thinks of Boris Johnson, his chances of getting us out of the EU and what life might be like if he succeeds.
