Neighbourhood Design: What can we learn from working with children?

ZCD Architects will shortly be publishing a focused study on a neighbourhood in Hackney East London, a pilot study for testing research, observational studies and participatory practices with children. The complex issues associated with children's lived experience and their local environment are carefully unpacked and reviewed side by side. The result aims for ground breaking propositions for neighbourhood design; effectively working better for children and young people as well as other age groups within the community.

The report will be available in summer 2018.

This research project is funded by Westminster University, A New Direction and RIBA.
