PlanTech Week Day Two 'Can we Measure the Quality of Place?'


Future Cities Catapult is organising PlanTech, a week-long series of free lectures, networking events and interactive installations that will debate and showcases the tweaks and transformations that technology is enabling in the planning system.

Advances in urban modelling, image recognition and neuroscience mean that it is increasingly possible to measure and ‘predict’ the quality of as yet unbuilt places. But does this risk the rise of identical developments and isn’t beauty in the eye of the beholder? In this panel discussion we will explore whether it is possible to quantify and measure the qualities that make for great urban places and what the ramifications are for the design and development of cities and neighbourhoods.
