Cultural Strategies

Taking a broad, rather than purely arts based notion of culture, these studies identified how cultural activity could play a role in the multifaceted business of urban regeneration and development, searching across arts, sports and environmental platforms to promote economic resilience, community well-being and environmental quality.

As a study that cuts across all aspects of the delivery of sustainable places, they were a strategic tool and source document from which could spring innovative and original approaches to urban design.

Our studies sought to ensure economic development recognises the core strengths of place and master-planning encompasses the social as well as environmental strands of sustainability.
