Cities are the new frontier for architects, urban designers, developers, contractors and manufacturers

Major developments and minor interventions rely increasingly on the public realm to deliver on wellbeing and value. From strategy to Section 106, cities are demanding better spaces and the positive benefits of green infrastructure can be felt across society as the hardware of place. How can we help build this? What are the mechanisms? And the opportunities?
