DEGW on looking good for housing

  • Comment

DEGW is drawing up 'aesthetic indicators' for government to use in standards for assessing Housing Corporation bids. Andrew Harrison, director of research and methodology, described it as 'a monumental task. We may be looking at secondary factors like context, scale and materials as defining 'good' and 'bad' design is incredibly hard to do.'

The guidelines are being prepared for the DETR.
