The University of Huddersfield's School of Art, Design and Architecture and Huddersfield Civic Society invite you to attend their prestigious annual joint no-charge lecture on Zoom at 19.00 on Tuesday 2 March 2021. The evening will begin with a short celebration this year of 100 years of the teaching of architecture in Huddersfield, led by Professor Adrian Pitts. This will be followed by the keynote talk from Nathan Cornish, Director of Urban Splash, titled ‘After 2020, how do we continue to regenerate and attract people to places like Huddersfield?’ Nathan will look at what helps bring about successful regeneration and regrowth in industrial buildings and in towns such as Huddersfield. Why are some towns and cities successful in this but others not? What makes a building or a town centre somewhere that people want to come, live, work and enjoy? There will also be an opportunity to put your questions.
