New technologies such as 3D printing have the potential to change the way that planners, urban designers and architects work, by helping them to operate more efficiently and allowing them to show their ideas spatially. Planning TV’s tech correspondent Kadine James is joined in the studio by Jamie McKie from Dentons’ Planning and Public Law Team to talk about new opportunities for public engagement in the planning process.
Kadine also went to Barking Riverside to meet Matthew Carpen, Executive Director of Barking Riverside and to look at the UK’s largest 3D printed masterplan, which shows how a new development is underway to bring over 10,000 new homes to a part of East London.
