An interesting extract from a Dezeen’s hosted video chatting with Mary Parsons, the commissioner behind the Building Better, Building Beautiful report in the UK. It’s a good insight into urban planning initiatives in the UK and highlights some of the lessons we all need to learn about poor planning on our housing developments. A good video for all architects and developers.

I am committed to improving the way we plan, design, and build. I strongly believe that implementing better building systems and practices can significantly improve project outcomes with less disruption and resources, all while reducing costs. My objective is to build robust global networks and relationships, and encourage greater industry collaboration and knowledge sharing, with the ultimate goal of significantly increasing the availability of high-quality, healthier, more energy-efficient, and sustainable buildings that can stand the test of time. Join us in our global mission to make a real difference to the way we build and live.
