Plymouth sounds

One of Barcelona's most eminent architect-planners, David Mackay, was in Plymouth last week to chair the first meeting of the city's new design review panel, which will comment on significant projects as an independent body giving advice to the council and other authorities. This prolongs Mackay's relationship with the city, for which he has produced (with architect/developer Roger Zogolovitch) a conceptual masterplan which really takes up where Abercrombie left off.

There seems to be a new spirit in the city to reclaim some of the lost connections and public spaces which evaporated as a result of traffic planning in recent decades; one can only hope that the brilliance of its setting can be matched by robust urban design and architectural responses.
