Grand Stations Design Banner

Are you working on RSA brief no. 2, Grand Stations Designs? If so, join us for a (free!) interactive workshop in collaboration with Network Rail...

Register now via Eventbrite (tickets are first-come, first-served):

- London workshop: Monday 3 December, 11:00 - 15:00 GMT
- Newcastle workshop: Thursday 6 December, 9:30 - 13:00 GMT
- Online workshop: Friday 7 December, 15:00 - 17:00 GMT

We’ll take you on a whistle-stop tour through a rapid innovation process that can be applied to place-based projects such as the Grand Stations Design brief.  You’ll have a chance to unpack the brief, gain insights from inspiring, analogous examples and hear from our award partners, Network Rail.

What you will learn:

•    Principles behind design for place-based change  
•    Methods for user engagement and prototyping in the built environment
•    How these can be applied to the Grand Stations Designs brief

We hope to see you there!
