Urban Design London.                                                                                                                 

These videos were recorded on 4th July 2007 at Urban Design London's Urban Designers' Day. 
Around 100 designers from both the private and public sectors came along to listen to these talks, discuss hot design topics, suggest how best to resource design quality, think about what skills designers need and of course meet each other and have some fun.
