Civic Centre Opportunity Site Design Charrette - September 2016
Look! St Albans was requested by 'The Partnership' comprising St Albans City and District Council Community Services, Herts Constabulary, NHS, and Boultbee LDN (owners of The Maltings) to host a design charrette on the Civic Centre Opportunity Site. We hosted the full design charrette starting on Friday 9 September, with a two-day design workshop over 10 and 11 September, and culminating with a report back session on Friday 16 September. A team of independent external facilitators led by Angela Koch of ImaginePlaces facilitated the event and are tasked with producing a range of debriefing reports.
The small, but highly motivated Team Look! volunteers gave hundreds of hours of their time to organise, arrange and host each of the four elements of the design charrette. More than 160 people attended one or more of these sessions, providing over 1,000 hours of their time.
Here are a series of Debrief documents, detailed reports, our letter of recommendation and video of the design charrette, in reverse chronological order of publication:
