  • Barratts first Studio called studio silo.
  • Lacuna 2003 It said ‘urban design should be taken to mean the relationship between different buildings; the relationship between buildings and the streets, squares, parks waterways and other spaces which make up the public domain; the nature and quality of the public domain itself; the relationship of one part of a village, town or city with other parts; and the patterns of movement and activity which are thereby established: in short, the complex relationships between all the elements of the built and unbuilt space. As the appearance and treatment of the spaces between and around buildings is often of comparable importance to the design of the buildings themselves, landscape design, whether hard or soft, should be considered as an integral part of urban design. 15. Good design should be the aim of all those involved in the development process and should be encouraged everywhere. Good design can help promote sustainable development; improve the quality of the existing environment; attract business and investment; and reinforce civic pride and a sense of place. It can help to secure continued public acceptance of necessary new development.
  • Claredale street winner housing design completed scheme awards 2010. created new street, interesting nesting of units within what look like terraced houses.
  • Two lists – qualities design should try to achieve and the things the design can change/play with.
