Quality of Life Study themes (Illustrator: Lizzie Lomax)

The Quality of Life Foundation has been set up to explore ways in which we can improve people’s quality of life by making wellbeing central to the way we create and care for our homes and communities. Quality of life can be understood to mean ‘the level to which individuals may feel their lives to be happy, active, sociable, interesting and meaningful’.

URBED have been working alongside Mikhail Riches and Mole Architects on a £28 million redevelopment of the Agora Centre in Wolverton, Milton Keynes.
The developer TOWN have issued their submission of the planning application which has been a major milestone for the Love Wolverton project. The decision for the application is due to be made in early 2021 with works commencing in mid-2021 for an estimated duration of two years.

These will reflect the history and unique character of their areas and be produced in consultation with residents.
