LI Webinar: Nordic Life in Urban Spaces with Vestre


Vestre makes a plea for a more democratic and inclusive design philosophy that supports the creation of social meeting places at a time when they are much needed in our society.

Truly sustainable places embrace economic, environmental, and social aspects and these must be brought together in a holistic manner if they are to ever be successful.

Join the team for a consideration of how we might create more caring and supportive outdoor spaces for all members of society through a Nordic approach.

Delegates will understand:

  • How Nordic culture has evolved into globally revered Scandinavian design, including its permeation into the design of outdoor areas
  • The importance of the right to roam in Nordic countries and how this impacts on public realm design
  • The study of proxemics, including how the psychology of space, and the specification of outdoor furniture, can drive different behaviours
