Issue No. 5

Elephant and Castle masterplan by Make.

Sustainability has come front and centre in the urban design sector, driving architects, developers and planners to approach their environmental and social responsibilities with increasing attention and innovation.

This edition of Exchange explores how we can use vibrant, people-centric urban design to create and empower communities, making them more green, inclusive and resilient in both the short and long term.

Interviews with sector professionals across the UK and Australia give insight into the latest building blocks of vital urban regeneration, including biodiversity initiatives, social investment strategies and modular design grids. We also take a look at Make’s global urban design portfolio, showcasing our principles in practice in cities around the world, from Salford to Chengdu.
