‘Value of Design in the Built Environment’ Research Paper Published
The Scottish Government have published a research paper into ‘Value of Design in the Built Environment’. The research was conducted by a team led by Doug Wheeler (Douglas Wheeler Associates) supported by Graham Ross (Austin-Smith:Lord) and Dr Mark Robertson (Ryden).
Commissioned by the Scottish Government Building Standards Division on behalf of the Planning and Architecture Division, the aim of the paper is to provide an analysis of how design ‘value’ is handled in the development process in Scotland. The publication of this research paper follows on from the Scottish Government’s Creating Places policy statement on architecture and placemaking.
