Quality urban design encourages creative and innovative approaches

It turns a functional place into a memorable place

Creativity facilitates new ways of thinking and a willingness to think through problems afresh to:

  • experiment and rewrite rules
  • to harness new technology, and
  • to visualise new futures.

Creative urban design supports a dynamic urban cultural life and fosters strong urban identities.
