Nesta talks to Pablo Sendra & Richard Sennett

Additional Team Members - Richard Sennett

Pablo Sendra and Richard Sennett discuss their book Designing Disorder with Vicki Sellick from Nesta. The public spaces of our cities are under siege from planners, privatisation and increased surveillance. Our streets are becoming ever more lifeless and ordered. What is to be done? Can disorder be designed?

In this conversation, Sendra and Sennett propose a reorganisation of how we think and plan the social life of our cities. ‘Infrastructures of disorder’ combine architecture, politics, urban planning and activism in order to develop places that nurture rather than stifle, bring together rather than divide up, remain open to change rather than closed off.
