Place Based Reviews
Architecture & Design Scotland
2012 – 2014
Pidgin Perfect developed a series of placemaking workshops which connected community members and organisations to local authorities at the outset of the development of new public buildings. The aim of the workshops was to uncover key community assets and to develop shared visions for the future.
Place Based Reviews builds on ‘Creating Places’, in particular, focussing on a number of areas within the document’s ‘Strategy for Architecture and Place.’ In collaboration with Architecture & Design Scotland we developed a process of utilising design thinking to promote a culture change of collective responsibility amongst stakeholders and the community. The outcomes of these workshops were Visual Briefs that embody the shared values and vision for any new building, or regeneration project that is accessible and legible to all parties.
