CABE Space researchers report international design practices

CABE Space scholars who explored good design in exemplar sites across the world earlier this year will present their findings at an event later this month.

The scholars have been examining the effect that good design can have on streets, parks and green spaces, public squares and neighbourhoods in several different countries.

During a briefing on 20 November, the returned scholars will share their experiences. CABE Space director Sarah Gaventa will lead the event, which will feature English Heritage and Lantra historic and botanic garden adviser Pamela Smith, who has examined food culture and plant heritage in communities in Canada, France, the US and the UK.

Also presenting findings is Places for People landscape manager Noel Murphy, who explored green space within social housing schemes in Scandinavia, Holland, France, Germany and the UK.

Play worker Penny Wilson has examined the design of adventure playgrounds in the UK and Amsterdam, while Highways Agency network strategy manager Neil Hansen studied creative uses of wasted space under elevated roads in the US and Netherlands.
