VeloCity collaborators at Green Sky Thinking’s Live Magazine 2018

VeloCity collaborators are taking part in a discussion panel that will bring different views on social networks, in the upcoming Green Sky Thinking’s Live Magazine 2018 hosted at UCL Bartlett School of Architecture.

The proposal made by the VeloCity team, captured the importance of designing functional living areas, introducing a place-based vision for reimagining how a group of small villages might evolve over a 30-year period. One of the strengths of VeloCity is its approach to utilise existing fast rail and road links and integrate them to a finer network of local pedestrian and cycle routes, laying the foundations for a more comprehensive strategy to reduce reliance on vehicular traffic.

VeloCity looks to create a social identity amongst the villages in the Cambridge to Oxford corridor, by incorporating a design that understands the benefits of designing healthy and socially cohesive homes and work environments.

The National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) and Malcom Reading Consultants (MRC) announced the winners of the Cambridge to Oxford Connection: Ideas Competition, last December.  Useful Projects Director Judith Sykes was part of the all-female, winning team who also included Jennifer Ross of Tibbalds Planning and Urban Design, Sarah Featherstone (Featherstone Young), Kay Hughes (Khaa), Petra Marko (Marko and Placemakers) and Annalie Riches (Mikhail Riches).


Friday 11th of May 2018 from 8.30am to 1.00pm.
