FORA.tv Speaker - Steve McAdam
Steve McAdam is a founder and director of Fluid, a multidisciplinary practice specialising in architecture and urban design. He is an architect with extensive experience in urban regeneration, masterplanning and participatory design and has led major urban regeneration projects in both the public and private sectors across the UK.
He was appointed to the London Olympic masterplanning team by the London Development Agency in August, 2003, to direct all aspects of stakeholder consultation, public sector engagement and responsive masterplanning.
Fluid played a similar role for the Kings Cross Central project for developer Argent plc, for which they received an award for innovation from the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE).
McAdam coordinates the activities and research of Fluid's Think Tank and its academic associations. These equate to all scales of regeneration from large masterplans to one-off architectural projects. He designed the ODPM award-winning sports, leisure and community Gateway Centre in Derby with co-director Christina Norton, which has drawn critical acclaim from academics, critics and local people.
McAdam is a consultant to the Council of Europe, and a visiting lecturer at London Metropolitan University where he was instrumental in setting up the Cities Research Institute and for the launch of a new MA course focusing on multidisciplinary approaches to urban regeneration. His work has been published and exhibited internationally.
