Making Better Places
The ADAM Architecture experience of housebuilding and masterplanning
Edited by Clive Aslet
Published by Triglyph Books
ADAM Architecture has extensive experience in the provision of new housing and place-making. At any one time, they are responsible for settlements containing thousands of new homes. Developments need to offer demonstrable benefits to existing communities as well as to the eventual occupiers of new properties. There is a value to making places rather than building houses where nobody will be proud to live in ten- or twenty-years’ time.
The 20 examples illustrated in this book, ranging in size from small infill sites to a large new town, show how choosing a different kind of development can lead to the provision of more homes in a shorter time, creating places that will not only address the country’s urgent housing needs, but enrich people’s lives. These are places to call home.
