Design Skills Symposium: Delivering Better Places
Start Date 27/09/2011
End Date 29/09/2011
Location Stirling 
Country United Kingdom 
Description Recent research by University of Glasgow Urban Studies Department for Scottish Government, RICS and Architecture and Design Scotland looked at the role of delivering better places in achieving these objectives. The research, based on case studies, notes that better places is about bringing together two key processes: market making and place making. The challenge is ‘how’ – this is the focus of Day 1 of the symposium. The daily programme includes the following seminars and is available to purchase separately from the full conference package at £50:-

Local economic development: the role of place and diversity; Sarah Longlands (Associate Research Fellow, Centre for Local Economic Strategies)
