A&DS launches 10-year wellbeing strategy
March 18 2021
Architecture & Design Scotland has launched a 10-year strategy that sets out how future buildings and places can benefit people and communities.
The organisation will spend the coming decade working with partners to ensure that everyone can benefit from proximity to green spaces and active travel routes within walkable urban neighbourhoods.
A&DS chair Ann Allen said “The significance of place – our buildings, infrastructure and spaces, and the way we use them to live our lives – has been highlighted like never before by the Covid-19 pandemic and the on-going climate emergency.
"Our role will be to stimulate a step-change in how Scotland’s places are planned, designed, delivered and sustained.”
Transferring these principles into built reality the body will coordinate approaches from the public sector to incorporate these goals when delivering services, places and infrastructure.
The public body will also coordinate input from the people who will experience these spaces to ensure that their thoughts can help guide the design process.
There is a touch of Carbrain in the sketch above.
Will they never learn?
Seriously, did you mean to say this?
We have never been very good regarding keeping our public realm tidy but things are now shockingly bad.
It might be the Scottish cringe -- everything and everyone is hopeless so why bother?
Fat Bloke on Tour - I agree with the points raised here, however I'm not sure if A&DS or Richard Carman have statutory responsibilities for waste management, public sanitation or the culture of late-stage capitalism; has their remit increased?
