4×4 is a series of ‘TED-talk’ style events exploring the cities and urban places where we are increasingly choosing to build our lives. Held on four consecutive Wednesdays in May each event will feature four diverse and interesting speakers, followed by a lively audience debate.

This year our overall theme is “City of Change” and at this event we are exploring the topic of “Resurrection”.


1. Katie Tonkinson – Architect at Hawkins/Brown. Having grown up in Manchester she has a unique perspective on the evolution of the city.

2. Ola Uduku – Professor of Architecture specialising in the history of educational architecture in Africa and contemporary social infrastructure provision for minority communities.

3. Sue Flack – Former Director of Planning and Transport at Nottingham City Council, now blogs about the experience of moving into a new eco-house at Eco House Pioneer.

4. Katie Fuller – Creative Director and Joint CEO, Hull City of Culture.
