Sadie Morgan speaks on design and infrastructure at MIPIM Cannes
Drmm Founding Director sadie Morgan, Joins the Mipim Main Stage to Discuss the Importance of Design in Infrastructure.
Drawing on her roles as an NIC commissioner and the HS2 independent design panel chair, she raised concern about the need for identity and longevity to be embedded in the design of key infrastructure projects, “The experience of our built environment speaks to our national identity; it says something about who we are and what we are good at. Why is it then that the design of our “places” is rarely considered?
We have architects to design our buildings, engineers our infrastructure, and transport planners our roads – and masterplanners to fit it all together. But when it comes to how our built environment connects together, the human scale is often lost.”
