CALL FOR 60+ year olds with a mind for Utopian visions!

We are looking for over 60 year olds for a half-day session to develop ideas for the future of cities - together with 8 year olds.

This first session will be on Thursday 27th June from 10.30-2.30pm at Camley Street Natural Park, Kings Cross and is part of the London Festival of Architecture.

Anybody interested should get in touch with

Susanne Tutsch,, t.020 7254 6336



Overall project and aim

City planning happens elsewhere. Processes are opaque, powerful interests lie with the other. This can lead to people feeling disempowered, and to the ignored needs, dreams and wishes of whole parts of society.

We want to open the process, turn it on its head and develop a bottom up imaginative vision.

By inviting people from both ends of the age spectrum together with artists and writers to dream up a fantastical and utopian future for a shared city, to learn from each other and dig deep, and to together create/ write stories and produce fragments of an urban future that is desirable and an environment conducive to wellbeing and sustainability.

Led by creative writers and artists, a utopian story of shared living and a city truly for all is imagined in a series of workshops with young people and older people.

The stories will be a starting point for us as architects – in collaboration with other planning, strategic and creative disciplines – to determine strategic steps we need to take to get to this imagined place and develop possible solutions and interventions.
