Walks and Talks

Exemplar were proud to be lead sponsor of the Design for London, London Open City exhibition at Somerset House that looked at the ways in which the city is transforming and aimed to offer Londoners the opportunity to contribute to the projects development.

The Exemplar walks and talks series opened up different perspectives on the development of successful city spaces, provoking interesting questions and fresh points of view.

Drawing on the theme of Open City, we hosted three talks which set out to raise questions on how we can approach the revitalisation of the city. Four inspirational speakers drew on their own experience to raise questions about how London can be transformed, by responding to major events, initiating creative thinking and truly integrating the desires of the resident population.

The walks explored the city spaces themselves, drawing out hidden gems, uncovering alternative narratives, and discovering different ways of viewing and occupying the urban realm.
