The Institute of Architects launches a publication called Shaping our places: a manifesto for the built environment at Parliament today.
It’s a guide stating the institute’s position on 5 concepts – community, sustainability, affordability, heritage & urban design – provides the value case for good practical design and is intended to spark debate and influence decisionmaking.
Institute president Richard Harris said: “Shaping our places is timely because our towns & cities are falling short of what they could be. We have to do better, and we can do better. Consistently building great places to live, work & play is critical to our prosperity as a nation.”
