Hear and see how Bristol created a unique concept – Bristol Legible City – to improve people’s understanding and experience of the city from mapping and infrastructure to public art and urban design, and how current innovations are leading the way globally.
Join walk leader Alastair Brook (Architecture Centre trustee) and Mike Rawlinson from multi-disciplinary design studio City ID as they lead a city centre walk along part of the Brunel Mile (a dedicated pedestrian and cycle route that runs from Bristol Temple Meads to ss Great Britain) sharing stories from their respective involvement in the project and how it has affected the urban design of the city.
This walk is part of the events programme accompanying our You Are Here exhibition celebrating the Bristol Legible City project. Bristol Legible City helps, guides and inspires people to explore the city and what it offers; encouraging people to visit and move about Bristol in a more sustainable way, supporting better public health and a greener city.
This guided walk will last up to 90 minutes. Please dress appropriately for the weather.
This event is part of WalkFest (1 – 31 May 2018).
