Festival of Place Bytesize offers a taste of the major annual event brought to you
by The Developer and taking place on 13 November at Tobacco Dock, East London
Festival of Place Bytesize webinars are free, but we welcome your support on Patreon.com/thedeveloperuk
At this online talk, Professor Nick Tyler, leading researcher and Chadwick Professor of Civil Engineering will explain how we can create urban spaces that bring people together, even in a time of physical distancing. Can humans be social from 2m away? How can we shape urban space to bring us together now that Covid-19 has made us suspicious of strangers, fearful of shopping and transport, and locked us down, apart?
Nick's research challenges what engineering is, working with neuroscientists, psychologists, architects, education and data analysts to discover how people navigate in the urban environment. Research includes the way in which common functions - such as walking - are managed by subconscious control systems which interact with the physical, sensory and cognitive environments in which people function, and how infrastructure can be designed to make the environment more sympathetic to people's needs.
Tuesday 16 June

Nick Tyler, Chadwick Professor of Civil Engineering, UCL
