So says Richard Rogers, Ken Livingstone's design czar, and architect of the Pompidou Centre and the Millennium Dome. He was speaking at a lunch today at Somerset House, hosted by the mayor's Design for London agency, which is responsible for planning the future of London's physical fabric. Rogers was predicting a sea-change in the way public spaces are designed in the next decade. Design for London has big plans (like the mayor's 100 Public Spaces programme, that will regenerate spaces from Brixton to Wembley, Gallions Reach to Acton), and the ideas behind it are mainly Rogers'. Read more about it in the Evening Standard today, which runs an interview with him. It's not online yet, but hopefully will be soon.
