• Research Project from Sheffield University

    What do you want from public spaces? This is the question being asked by a new research project from Sheffield University, which seeks to find what you, as a user, want from public spaces, in order to help improve their quality. Please can we share this far and wide to inform the design debate. There’s a chance to win a £50 voucher too – click here to take part.

    The PhD research project “Restoration in the urban environment: informing design guidelines for small urban green spaces”, conducted at the Landscape department of the University of Sheffield, seeks to find which design elements of small urban green spaces will lead users to appreciate these spaces and find them to be relaxing environments. There is increased recognition that cities need to be designed better with health in mind, and that urban nature is an important contributor to this.
