A DESIGN GUIDE FOR LONDON’S PUBLIC SPACES

Image showing in-between spaces

When one examines the passage of much contemporary development in London through the planning system, it becomes apparent that public sector intervention can vary hugely. Sometimes it is hands on and proactive, sometimes discrete but nevertheless vital in managing the public interest. At other times it has been unnecessarily reactive and even, at times, negative. Rarely is a coherent vision or plan available for local areas and so almost always responses to design are ad hoc.

Might we do better, and within the framework set down by the London plan, establish a more coherent and coordinated approach to delivering design quality? This year (2012) MSc students of the Bartlett School of Planning explored these isses through an examination of London’s public space and the potential, or not, to better guide its design, development, use and management through a coherent framework of guidance.
