The cost of bad design

Everyone can think of a building they hate, a place that really depresses them or a place where they’d call in the bulldozers. So why, when the problems it creates are impossible to miss, are we still surrounded by bad design? The cost of bad design features essays commissioned by CABE to highlight what happens when buildings and spaces go wrong. This collection is the first stage in a continuing campaign assessing the cost of bad design.
