We all need My Place
Why don’t we place more value on good quality, thoughtfully designed public space in this country? The obvious pleasure it gives to those who pass through or live with such places should make it a no-brainer. Spaces like North Edinburgh Grows, last year’s winner of Scottish Civic Trust’s My Place Awards. These awards promote and celebrate high quality local design in the hope that it becomes the norm for every community across Scotland. My Place is for local people to nominate local projects they think are the epitome of good design and local conservation.
