The City of Bath is a World Heritage Site, with Roman, Georgian and Regency architecture set in a dramatic landscape, which together provide a beautiful and unique urban setting. While conservation of the city’s landscape and building heritage has restored much of the city centre; the public realm, however, has not received such care. To address this problem, Bath and North East Somerset Council commissioned The Bath Pattern Book to provide public-realm design guidance for the city centre. The Pattern Book, which is the result of more than three years’ work, reinvents the idea of a city built around the pleasure to be found in sharing the public realm. It draws on archive evidence of the elements of the Georgian city and combines this with research into people-centred place-making and current best practice in pedestrian-priority public realm design.
