London Young Planners

RTPI London Young Planners was established to deliver the 2012 Young Planners Conference. It was then run via a separate-but-parallel committee until 2014, when it was merged with RTPI London. This page is therefore for archive value and is not being updated.

Meet the RTPI London Young Planners Committee 2013

We thought we would introduce All YPsourselves and let you know what we get up to. It would be rude not to!  If you see us at events do come and say hello – we organise them for you.

We are open to ideas for events, socials, articles for the blog and are always happy to welcome new members into the committee.

YOUNG PLANNERS EVENT REVIEW: “Temporary Spaces, Permanent Purposes”

The NLA event held last Wednesday (29th May) was a swift but lively whistle-stop tour of St Chad's PlaceMeanwhile Uses, at a very full St Chad’s Place at King’s Cross. Whilst we sipped our beers and nestled into the former mechanic’s workshop and Victorian warehouse, the tour chugged and jerked its way through a hand-picked collection of meanwhile uses, spaces and activities to give a glimpse into a rapidly evolving and exciting genre of design and urban thinking. The presentation took the form of a Pecha Kucha style event which scratched the surface of a number of active and emerging case studies, predominantly in London, providing flash card images, and meandering through the minds of a range of architects into spaces previously unknown.
