LSE Cities to host research seminar on 'Games and participatory tools in urban research and design'



Co-hosted by LSE Cities' Research Officer Alexandra Gomes, this hour-long research seminar will include two rounds of presentations. Tanushree Agarwal will introduce “Kuwaitscapes”, a card game based on the LSE Cities and Kuwait University research project “Public Space in Kuwait: From user behaviour to policy-making”. Following this, Adriana Valdez Young will then introduce her work and provide examples of “Playful Cities” exploring: What role play has in planning and activating our public spaces; and how prioritising play can build healthier communities and cities, especially as the world struggles with managing and recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.
