The ‘Design Shaped Hole’ in Planning

Patra Marko in Building Design – you could equally say their is a ‘design shaped hole’ in the leadership of strategic planning and garden communities projects also.

There is currently a design-shaped hole in the understanding of too many people leading infrastructure projects, says Petra Marko

The building industry continually grapples with how to prove the value of design. When it comes to infrastructure projects of national importance, good design is about much more than aesthetics.

Just look at Oslo’s new airport with its high sustainability credentials and great user experience, or Rotterdam Centraal station which stitches the centre of the city back together while integrating complex modal interfaces.
