The Influence of Design, Development and Preservation

High quality urban design delivers on multiple levels.

It makes our towns and cities more desirable places in which to live by ensuring they have good public transport facilities, adequate supplies of affordable housing, and equitable access to job opportunities, social services, and community facilities.

As well as positively influencing socio-economic disposition, good urban design determines the health, social and cultural characteristics of a locality: how people interact with each other, how they move around, and how they use a place.

It ensures environmental outcomes are accorded the same status as social, cultural, and economic outcomes.

PIA stands firm in the belief that quality of design matters – and that this can be facilitated and encouraged by example and by balancing private, government and community interests.

Join us for this day as we discuss, debate, and look over examples that highlight the importance of high-quality design.
