Urban design workshops draw upon a wide range of expertise in a concentrated event that might typically take place over a day or over a weekend. This is particularly suited to complex urban design issues which require a broader level of examination and a raised awareness of latent opportunities. These would normally be led by eminent practitioners working with local professionals, decision makers and interested lay people, culminating in a public exhibition and critical discussion about the way forward.
