Rural Urban Synthesis Society Evening Talks
On Wednesday 16 January there will be a talk about architect Walter Segal and the unique self-build housing projects that he built in Lewisham in the 1980s. Alice Grahame – author of ‘Walters Way and Segal Close: The Architect Walter Segal and London’s Self-Build Community’ – will explain how the original Walters Way self-build project came about. She will be joined by Kareem Dayes, who grew up in Walters Way. Kareem went on to set up RUSS, and he has been the driving force behind RUSS’s current project in Church Grove, which is due to start on site later this year.
Date: Wednesday 16 January
Time: 7 – 8.30pm
Venue: Café of Good Hope at PLACE/Ladywell (261 Lewisham High Street, SE13 6NJ). The closest station is Ladywell
The talks are open to anyone. They are free to RUSS members; a small donation towards the cost of the room hire would be appreciated from non-members that can afford it.
RUSS Co-Chair Kwame Lowe-Benjamin said he was especially keen to attract local people to the talks and to get their thoughts on how the organisation might develop in the future. “We want to hear about the issues and ideas that are important to local people so that we can make RUSS a truly community-led movement, as we seek to build sustainable neighbourhoods and genuinely affordable homes in Lewisham and beyond,” he said.
