For the one of you that are going to be in Europe around July, below there is an interesting opportunity related to design and the urban sphere.

The Collaborative Centre for the Built Environment (CCBE) is pleased to announce the launch of our Urban Design Summer School. This Urban Design Summer School is going to have a creative look at several watersides in Northampton with the aim to design new and exciting waterscapes. We will explore what good urban design is, why it contributes to successful and sustainable places and how it can be achieved. Lessons learned and proposals developed for Northampton will be transferable in principle and provide rich inspiration for projects elsewhere.

The Urban Design Summer School is run at the University of Northampton by the Collaborative Centre for the Built Environment in conjunction with the Academy of Urbanism, the Canal and River Trust and David Lock Associates.
