We want a city of high streets
This talk makes the case for a city of high streets, with reference to research undertaken in London by and for the Design for London team in the few years following 2010. The case is made for high streets (offering places of exchange and of welcome for a diverse civic and economic life) as the big urban idea for the current century, linch-pin of the new metropolitan spirit, host for an organic refreshing of the civic, and a bold way forward for the city of continuities and mix.
