The Art of making places for people – the BBC go behind the scenes with our Urban Designers

WWADP welcomed the BBC to the practice today filming behind the scenes with our Urban Designers.

Partner John Ashton, Urban Design Associate Hannah Smart and members of the design team showed the human side of housing development, when the BBC joined them at WWADP Practice.

The team discussed a current project sharing insight to how they balance the necessity for new homes with often conflicting community factors with sensitivity and creativity – demonstrating how they make places for people.

Urban design bridges the two disciplines of architecture and town planning – and is key to creating sustainable developments and the conditions for a flourishing economic life.

In the solutions WWADP present for successful villages, towns and cities they need to consider how places work as well as look, the connections between people and places, movement and urban form, nature, landscape.

The filming will form part of documentary to be aired on BBC 2 next spring.
