“It's my first visit to Karlsruhe and I'm very impressed with the projects seen. The Alter Schlachtof is a former slaughterhouse converted into a start-up business centre, on which the refurbishment of Sneinton Market was modelled so it's really interesting to see how they have done things here in Germany.”

Catherine Mayhew - Director of Programmes & Operation - The Big House (CQ Team)
