Working with communities and partners around the country and around the world, The Prince’s Foundation promotes and champions a sustainable approach to how we live our lives and build our homes. From heritage-led regeneration through to new build projects, we do this through assisting, advising and taking the lead.
From renovating community spaces for local people to transforming derelict buildings into thriving visitor attractions, we have undertaken many projects over the years which have enabled us to put our planning, architectural and heritage expertise into practice. In 2018 we launched our ‘7 for 70’ programme, which will see the Foundation undertake community heritage projects across the United Kingdom. Current projects include the restoration and reopening of Drapers’ Hall, Coventry as a music education and performance space and the transformation of the remote Strata Florida Abbey in Wales into a centre for education and celebration of Welsh culture.
Architecture and urbanism
We work with partners to plan and champion new sustainable developments and hone an approach to urbanism, masterplanning and placemaking that will benefit us all. The Prince’s Foundation has worked closely with partners and colleagues on projects such as the Braemar Highland Games Centre, Bahrain New Town and Fort Mac, Atlanta. In July 2019, the Foundation published ‘Housing Britain: A Call to Action’, a blueprint for addressing the issue of housing in the UK.
The Prince’s Foundation has been involved in a wide variety of overseas projects, from planning a sustainable new neighbourhood in Sierra Leone to restoring a beautiful historic building in Yangon, Myanmar. All of our international projects champion sustainable urban growth, provide skills education in developing countries and leave a tangible demonstration project to become a regional exemplar. Current projects include launching a toolkit for managing rapid urbanisation, building resilient housing in hurricane-hit Barbuda and overseeing an urban regeneration scheme to finally reunite two communities in Rose Town, Jamaica.
