Feeling good in public spaces – dialogues series

November 2015 to December 2016

Working with the Feeling Good Foundation, we’ve examined how people’s senses can be affected by the design of public spaces and building frontages. Find out more on our dialogue series events:

A broad understanding of ‘public spaces’ was used throughout the series, ranging from publicly owned streets, pathways, right of ways, parks, publicly accessible open spaces through to the curtilage and frontages of buildings.

The events included talks based on academic and industry research findings, and provided a forum for discussion. They brought together researchers and practitioners to discuss the sensory implications of current public realm design and the implications of research findings for current methods of urban place-making. At the final event in the series, we published an overview of the series.
