Riot police confronting by rioters in 2011 riots in EnglandHow should design respond to the challenges facing our cities today, particularly in the wake of the recent riots?

Should we be ‘designing against rioting’ or designing more inclusive communities?

This talk draws directly on research, undertaken for government departments, that examines design’s contribution to crime reduction and counter terrorism, and presents a new vision for design and the city.
