Reshaping Design Governance is a thorough introduction to, and in-depth analysis of the work of the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE) and its programmes, practices and influence. Authored by leading experts in the fields of urban design and planning, it is designed specifically for design practitioners and those in related fields of public policy and urban governance.
CABE fronted a national drive in England for better design in the built environment and was an attempt to address questions of design through systematic government action. The commission campaigned for, researched and prescribed solutions to the delivery of better architectural, urban and public space design.
Through in depth analysis of the commission, Reshaping Design Governance:
- Tells the story of CABE, from its policy beginnings through its successes and failures
- Unpacks CABE’s extensive toolbox, its methods and processes
- Re-evaluates design governance as an arm and aspiration of public policy
Reshaping Design Governance illuminates larger, fundamental questions about the role, nature and legitimacy of design as a public policy tool, and asks whether, how and to what degree the state should engage in such concerns. It is a must-have purchase for professionals in design, public policy and urban governance fields.
