Panel Discussion

Production sites, such as workshops or small manufacturers, have a tendency to disappear into the cityscape; often located on the outskirts given the difficulties they face in affording city-centre locations and all the beneficial infrastructure that comes with them. However, they are changing these fringe locations: it has been proven that bringing subculture movement and craft industries together can create appealing urban spaces. These new combinations correspond with new typologies for living and working: they avoid a separation of professional and private spheres and in doing so create micro-universes in the middle of the city. Their success depends upon developers involving future tenants from the outset. Creating a welcoming sense of liveliness attracts additional new producers and concepts and turns former non-places in core urban spaces.
