Scottish Sustainable Communities: Studies & Prototypical Lessons
Location: Scotland, UK. Region, Metropolis, City, and Town
A series of design charrettes activated the public in the development process and determined the fate of three distinct projects: an urban infill site adjacent to a historic campus; a downtown revitalization project that includes a future greenfield extension; and large-scale, mixed-use city expansion. Led by the Scottish government, the initiative encouraged high-quality, sustainable urban design and public participation. Development teams for all three sites –including a municipal body, a public/private partnership and a private entity – shared the goal of delivering attractive, healthy and accessible environments in which people can live, work and enjoy a high quality of life.Read more at this project's website.
