U+I Think - On heritage
Issue #2 Issue #2
U+I Think is a platform designed to challenge perceptions, drive debate and foster creative placemaking across the property industry.
Heritage plays a key role here so our latest newsletter considers what constitutes heritage in the built environment, how to define it in a multicultural setting and, crucially, why heritage assets can help to build a better future.
The newsletter is inspired by a recent U+I Think Event – a talk from Tristram Carfrae, discussing his work on Barcelona’s Sagrada Família.

Greenwich Peninsula has a rich industrial past but recent times
have been less than kind to this part of south-east London.
Now, there is hope for change, with ambitious plans, led by
U+I, to bring Morden Wharf back to life, with new homes,
commercial space and public realm, inspired by the area’s
centuries-old heritage.

When graffiti is first daubed on walls and public spaces, it

is an essential part of our culture and can become a unique
marker of an area’s identity and heritage.
