LIFI22 – Kevin McCloud
Today has brought an insightful discussion to begin the festival keynote chats. Kevin McCloud from Grand Designs never failed to astound us with his extensive understanding of communities and the built environment.
- The built environment should have community at its heart
- We think of the internet as a community. But when times get tough, it can’t support us the way a physical community can.
- Art of all kinds can bring a positive reinforcing energy in to communities.
- We should be wary of “sweeping away the old” as we build new communities.
- When you give communities power over their place, they take it and enjoy it.
- If we are to create a world that is fairer and better, we aren’t going to be able to do it the same way we have been trying to for the past 300 years; The idea of sharing society, spaces and lots more can change this.
