Landscape architect and urban designer Jenny Elliott is asking built environment professionals to share their practical experiences of public space design, planning, and decision-making, to help inform the implementation of ‘best practice’ public spaces
An international research project aiming to improve on-the-ground place outcomes for the public realm is looking for survey respondents.
Through her research at the University of Edinburgh, and in collaboration with Connected Places Catapult, landscape architect and urban designer Jenny Elliott is asking built environment professionals to share their practical experiences of public space design, planning, and decision-making via a short survey.
Jenny was a finalist for the 2020 Landscape Institute ‘Excellence in Community Engagement’ Award for her public realm project Data and Design for Property Planning. Through this new project, she seeks to understand how, as an industry, we might tackle the practical barriers to implementing ‘best practice’ public spaces – places that maximise health, well-being, user experience, and environmental outcomes. What changes to policy, budgets, or working practice might help? What role could urban data, digital technologies, or ‘plan-tech’ play? Jenny will share her insights with the UK built environment industry and policy-makers with the long-term aim of improving place outcomes for urban public spaces.
The survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete. For each complete response, Jenny will donate £1 to Trees for Cities. In addition, five randomly selected respondents will receive a Domestika giftcard as a thank you for their time.
