The Long Now is the recognition that the precise moment you’re in grows out of the past and is a seed for the future
Brian Eno 

Designing can be a contradictory process. At once making for the present, with the inherent optimism of forming something for the future, whilst also considering and referencing our shared histories. Our understanding of what is ‘now’, and how that affects future ‘nows’ is critical if we are to address the challenges ahead.  

This year, Studio NOW has been investigating the well publicised decline of high streets and what role ‘culture’ has in their reinvigoration.  Projects looked to create future visions for Williamson Square addressing temporary uses, public space and new uses for old buildings- working with past nows, quick nows, and long future nows. We ask, can culture reinvigorate and help diversify our town centres to provide new, accessible spaces and experiences for urban life to thrive?
