Better public building

Since the government’s Better Public Building initiative was launched, we have seen high-quality building design result in some outstanding new schools, libraries, hospitals and transport infrastructure. Too much new public building, however, still falls short of the high standards we expect. Better public building provides the arguments and the evidence that good design makes places work better. It offers practical advice for creating new public building that is value for money, sustainable and a source of civic pride. And it sets out the steps that public bodies need to follow if they are to ensure that all those who use public services benefit from good design.

This edition supersedes Better public buildings: A proud legacy for the future, published in October 2000.
