Building excellence in the arts



Despite the recession, interest in the creation of arts buildings shows few signs of waning, and it continues to be a popular topic for architecture students. CABE has just released an excellent step-by-step guide to the procurement process for arts clients which sets out the key principles behind good design. It is illustrated with case studies of existing arts buildings and is accompanied by a useful bibliography.
