Designs on Democracy

Designs on Democracy

Architecture and Design in Scotland Post Devolution

Disasters, pandemics, the War on Terrorism? Whatever your memories of the Noughties, this was also a Scottish decade. Design, politics and identity came together.


CATEGORIZED IN

Whilst there are some studies of architecture in Scotland post-devolution, writings on design are largely non-existent. Designs on Democracy seeks to fill that gap and ranges over the debates concerning architecture, urbanism, design and the Creative and Cultural Industries and the policies, people and places that stimulate and animate them. The book also tells a story about Scotland’s creatives –where they work and how their ideas and what they create and design contribute to Scotland’s democratic culture and identity.
