Making it happen

The Urbanism Awards provide important inspiration and lots of good ideas for what a great city, neighbourhood or street should look like.

The government’s Housing White Paper provides a vital opportunity to engage with one of the biggest issues of our time, next to Brexit, which is how to double housing output and make our cities fairer and more sustainable.

Nicholas Falk AoU and Jon Rowland AoU report.
