Landscape architect Will Sandy and Building Centre creative director Vanessa Norwood discuss the impact Extinction Rebellion’s actions are having on the built environment and ideas of the future city
In this podcast, Christine Murray is joined by landscape architect Will Sandy and Building Centre creative director Vanessa Norwood to discuss the actions of Extinction Rebellion and how cities can do more to address social and environmental issues.
Sandy is creative director at The Edible Bus Stop, a biodiverse design studio whose temporary and permanent spaces can be seen all over London. Norwood is creative director of the Building Centre and was previously Head of Exhibitions at the Architectural Association.
In this conversation, the trio discuss how “tactical urbanism” and one-day activations such as the Extinction Rebellion road closures give people the opportunity to experience the city in new ways.
"The architecture revealed and traffic removed," says Norwood.
