Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment

The British government created the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE) in order to improve citizen's quality of life through good design. It is a lofty and admirable mission, and persons with an interest in architecture, urban design, and public space will enjoy wandering around this site. First-time visitors can look over the news updates on the homepage to get a sense of CABE's mission and focus, and then move on over to the "Latest Publications" area. Here visitors will find a number of gems, including the instructional manual "Better public building" and "Actions for housing growth: creating a legacy of great places". Visitors looking for high-quality case studies on designing commercial buildings, educational facilities, and civic buildings will find plenty to view on the site. Finally, the site is rounded out by the "Teaching Resources" area, which includes instructional materials for educators seeking to teach their students about what makes places work well for different users.
