Key findings released from a national Galaxy poll commissioned to gauge the Australian community’s views on the benefits of good design for public buildings and public spaces; and the importance of involving qualified and experienced designers in public buildings
Almost all Australians (97%) believe that cities and towns are better to live in when public buildings and public spaces are well designed. People appreciate good design (QB1). o Almost everyone also agrees that each of seven design aspects of public buildings are important. The design aspects of public buildings and spaces that have the greatest level of importance for Australians are ‘the building makes good use of space’ (70% say ‘very important’) and ‘that open space is provided for the use and enjoyment of the public’ (66% say ‘very important’) (QB2).
