Current Research

Types are a fundamental feature of our environment, yet so frequently as designers and planners, we take their existence for granted and ignore their true meanings entirely.   This research aims to shine a light on this complex and fascinating topic, with specific reference to ‘open space’. Can a greater understanding of type inform the creation of better places?
