Abstract: The story of the redevelopment of London’s Isle of Dogs is one that has only partially been told. Most academic interest ceased following the property crash of the early 1990s when the demise of Olympia & York seemed to bear out many contemporary critiques. Yet the market bounced back, and so did Canary Wharf. The presentation will ask: What forms of planning have we seen on the Island; what role has design played in these; what outcomes have resulted from these processes; and as a result, have we yet seen an urban renaissance?

Biography: Matthew Carmona is Professor of Planning & Urban Design and Head of the Bartlett School of Planning, UCL . His research has focused on the policy context for delivering better quality built environments. His background is as an architect and a planner and he has published widely in the areas of urban design, design policy and guidance, housing design and development, measuring quality and performance in planning, and on the management of public space.
