WHAT DESIGN CAN DO Conference Amsterdam May 2015 – The Empowered City

Jo worked with Ali Grehan –  Dublin City Architect on a breakout session at this year’s WDCD Conference. Looking specifically at apartment living challenges in inner city Dublin we took the ambition of The Empowered City and kick started ideas for future Design Action Teams. Great working with Paul Hughes from 10 Metres of Thinking,  Dairmaid Lawlor Head of Urbanism in Edinburgh and Bob Gray of Red and Grey Design and the great group that came along to share their energy and ideas.
