Living Better: Consuming Less

Chris Ryan [CR] spoke about the future inspired work that has been overseen by VEIL for an inner city redevelopment site.

It will be informed by 'slow' (as in slow food), it will be productive and it will have a re-shaped urban form.

Above all Chris spoke of the importance of imagining a positive and inspired vision of the future and opening up to the rich ideas of emerging designers.

  • 'creating a movement for expanding optimism'
  • 'motivating change'
  • 'we cannot afford to create one building that is not sustainable (that would need to be retro fitted later). Docklands already needs retro fitting
