In this new webinar series, Urban Manifesto, successfully launched on 26 May 2020, we create a manifesto for a happier, healthier and liveable urban future as the world transitions from the COVID emergency into a new era. For our second episode we explore ‘Streets as Places for Commerce and Culture’ with Rohit Shinkre, a Mumbai-based architect and academic, and Adam Walker, the UK entrepreneur reimagining urban places. Urban Manifesto is co-hosted by Lucy Bullivant, place strategist, author & founder of Urbanista.org and Prathima Manohar, founder of think-do-tank The Urban Vision.
This session is also live streamed by the Architecture Foundation as part of its ongoing 100 Day Studio online initiative: https://www.architecturefoundation.or…
Adam Walker Adam Walker, the founder of CRATE, has announced his decision to step down from the workplace brand he has built over the last six years. Adam is looking forward to spending time with his family, travelling and launching his next entrepreneurial mission reimagining places. This new venture launches this year at LREF (London Real Estate Forum, 9-10 Sept) with some unusual and exciting regeneration schemes for the post-C19 world. Adam says “I’m excited to be preparing to launch my new business which will be reimagining and ripping up the retail rule book. I believe that this is our opportunity to reset and reboot real estate” as we knew it.
