Getting the big picture right
A guide to large scale urban design
How do we deal with economic, social and environmental challenges that affect the lives of people over large areas and cannot be solved through local action?
Getting the big picture right outlines a new approach to large scale urban design that allows people to shape the places they live or work in, and improve their distinctiveness and quality.
It will help those organisations and partnerships – often with a mix of public and private partners – tasked with working with local people to prioritise actions and investment.
This guide is supported by our step-by-step guide to the large scale urban design process:
- The workshop-based process
- Prepare - understand the challenge
- Design - develop a spatial strategy
- Implement - deliver the strategy
- Good examples of large scale urban design
You can also see the whole process at a glance.
