The Value of Urban Design –
National Urban Design Conference Reports.
Nearly 200 people took part in this year’s conference in Oxford, sponsored by Savills Urban Design. A clear statement of commitment to the cause.
The Urban Design Group annual conference at the end of October provided several discussions on the value of high quality design. In particular, Yolande Barnes from Savills research team gave a very interesting account of the commercial and long-term values that can be gained from good design. Yolande’s presentation also starts with a great Banksy image.
