Love Architecture Planning Series : City Centres - ideas on the way forward

LCB Depot and online

A look at how ‘city centres’ should respond to the new world. The intention is that firstly there will be a review of the threats to bricks and mortar operations within city centres. This will to be followed by the business experiences of successful entrepreneurs who have successfully combined growing city centre physically based businesses with varied business models that have utilised the strengths of different formats. Cities are ultimately about people and the urban experience, so can the right people with the right support ensure City centres remain vital in the twenty first century?
