The ‘Shaping Places’ seminar, held on September 6th, featured a presentation on the book – authored by Professor David Adams and Steve Tiesdell. The event was also the official opening of the exhibition featuring some of the key points expressed in the book alongside a selection of the photography of Steve Tiesdell.
The seminar opened with a presentation on and response to the book by David Adams and Steve Tiesdell. This discussion looked both the role of the state and its institutions in setting the framework for achieving better places, and the role of the private sector and its institutional, cultural and financial frameworks in delivering better places. Following the presentations, the debate from the floor located some of the arguments in the book in both the UK and Scottish development contexts.
