Context - Sensitive Design

This event explored how good design can be nurtured within a sensitive context, be it a historic, rural, or a peri-urban place looking to grow. Sensitive and responsive design is rooted in a deep understanding of the established condition and historic context, balanced with future aspiration - so we will seek to build an understanding of what sort of studies, analysis and research underpin this effort, as well as how this iterative, non-linear process is best captured in the planning system. This will be explored through a workshop exercise, where we reflect on exemplar submission documents developed

by the speakers. The masterclass explored what sensitive design looks like across contexts, guided by projects in varied contexts, such as Tweedbank, a historic masterplan in the Scottish Borders, to Campbell Park, an urban extension in Milton Keynes.
