Design Matters

While calling for good design is easy enough, describing what this looks like is more complex. Our Design Matters reports use examples of quality architecture in areas including sustainability, housing, and exporting internationally to showcase how good design is integral to a successful project.

Quality, safety and sustainability are at the core of what makes a well designed building. The case studies included in these reports epitomise these qualities, exemplifying design excellence and often delivering meaningful social impact.

These reports are key tools to promote the importance of good design, architecture and architects to clients, Members of Parliament, and civil servants. We use these reports to raise the profile of architecture at the highest levels.

We hope you learn from these examples and help create a better future.
