The Bartlett Research Exchanges (BREs) are internal showcase events that regularly gather together staff from across the Faculty to hear thought-provoking presentations and engage in lively debate. As well as celebrating our interdisciplinary research strengths, these BREs provide an opportunity for researchers to build upon the breadth and depth of expertise in the Bartlett to forge new collaborations that can answer the challenging research questions found in the built environment.

As a concept and practice, 'regeneration' cuts across many different areas of the Bartlett. In this Bartlett Research Exchange, ten speakers - drawn from the Bartlett Schools of Architecture, Planning, Graduate Studies and the Development Planning Unit - will use one image to present their own 'bite-sized' perspective on regeneration in ten minutes. The aim is to consider the ethics or contemporary regeneration practice and to start a cross-disciplinary conversation about what regeneration means as a research field today.

The event will be chaired by Ben Campkin (Bartlett School of Architecture/Urban Laboratory) and the confirmed speakers are: Claire Colomb (Bartlett School of Planning), Jane Rendell (Bartlett School of Architecture), Alex Frediani (Development Planning Unit), Nikos Karadimitriou (Bartlett School of Planning), Alan Penn (Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment), Mike Raco (Bartlett School of Planning), Claudio de Magalhaes (Bartlett School of Planning), Peter Bishop (Bartlett School of Architecture), Michael Edwards (Bartlett School of Planning) and Murray Fraser (Bartlett School of Architecture).
