An excellent, clear and valuable document setting out the principles for management and making of good places, produced by The Paul Hogarth Company, with Gareth Hoskins Architects, CUi & WYG, on behalf of the Planning Policy Division of the Department of the Environment, Northern Ireland. It is targeted at all types of people involved, from planners, architects and engineers to traffic-wardens, shop keepers and buskers, it gives a detailed introduction to the elements of place that are universal, as well as the challenges in stewardship & design. It avoids check-list simplifications instead breaking down what is meant quality through places that are visionary, collaborative, contextual, responsible, accessible, hospitable, vibrant & diverse, crafted, viable and enduring. It contains a brief but interesting development history of Northern Ireland, some local case studies and a long list of references.
