‘We know what to do, so why don’t we do it?’ - a direct quote from one of our speakers at last year’s Debate in Scotland summarises the frustration many have with how we practice
placemaking. What is it about how we learn about place and how we practice placemaking
that stops us having a holistic approach to place? How do our ideas about practice make or break the places we create?
Our first debate of our 2014/15 Debate Series in partnership with The Academy of Urbanism and the Open University featured:
Pauline Gallacher, Neilston Development Trust
Professor Chris Platt, Head of Architecture, Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow
Etive Currie, Senior Planner, Glasgow City Council
and was chaired by Sophia de Sousa, Chief Executive of The Glass-House, and supported by DTAS, Glasgow Urban Lab at the Glasgow School of Art and Architecture and Design Scotland.
