Panel Discussion

Creating Value in Development & Public-Private Ventures: the recent years have seen the developments of derivative forms of public-private partnerships that tend to creatively enlarge the scope of possibilities regarding the definition, the program, the financing and the future uses of a project. How do design and creative tools intervene in the early stages of a project to define new custom made and flexible policies for new build. How do we add value to new live/co-work/design developments and incorporate a sense of corporate social responsibility? What is the outcome of sustainable partnerships between planner and architect?
