Urban Realm Winter edition now available
December 21 2011offering a seasonal treat for subscribers.
Being the bearer of bad news is never pleasurable, especially so at this time of year, but the growing wave of grim tidings emanating from some of our biggest practices is genuine cause for concern.
Austin-Smith:Lord are regarded as one of the most capable practices at work today, it is alarming therefore to see the firms future hang so precariously in the balance. This issue we take a closer look at the genesis of this malaise, and seek to find out how things might be improved.
Amidst talk of a likely double dip recession the Carbuncles take on renewed importance this year. That is certainly true of Linwood which has suffered a period of protracted decline through the supposed boom years.
The Carbuncle winner raises fundamental questions of how such communities can prosper in the years ahead, questions we attempt to answer.
Not to be seen as Scrooge we also attempt to instil some seasonal cheer with the results of our survey of the top interior design practices at work today.
We also take a look at some of the positive changes taking place in Govan, as a concerted regeneration effort finally shows signs of bearing fruit.
We hope you enjoy all this and more in our bumper festive issue. Merry Christmas!
