Sarah Featherstone curated The Spring Forum Debate for The Architecture Cub to discuss new approaches to growing vibrant and viable communities in the countryside. Petra Marko from VeloCity joined a panel of speakers chaired by Professor Flora Samuel discussing how against the backdrop of climate emergency and a COVID pandemic we can evolve long-term approaches to creating viable, sustainable rural communities and provide appropriate housing that positively challenges the way in which planning and development in the countryside has traditionally been approached. Petra was joined on the panel by Ben Rawlence from Black Mountains College, Robbie Kerr from ADAM Architecture and Rob Hopkins from Transition Towns.
