Yorkshire's Greatest Planning Achievements: the 1960s

The new brutalism movement produced many iconic buildings recognised today for their architectural merit, including Park Hill, Sheffield and The Roger Stevens building at the University of Leeds.  This event will explore the architecture, planning and community concepts of such development, focusing on development designed to re-house communities destroyed by large scale slum clearance.

This seminar includes a guided walking tour of Park Hill flats.

This is the sixth in a series of special Centenary low cost seminars for RTPI members, where we look at the greatest planning achievements in Yorkshire over the past 100 years.
