IGI Design Studies
The "IGI Approach"
Woodland Creation to Reduce Flood Risk
Identifying Areas at Risk
Green Infrastructure to Reduce Overheating Risk
2012 current case
2050 predicted temperature
GI changes under 2050 climate
- 10% vegetation
+ 10% vegetation
+ 20% vegetation
+ 100% vegetation
Aim for 20% increase in GI
Delivering 20% more GI
Not all GI is equal
New Parks are best, but maybe impractical
A combination of parks/street trees/green roofs/ green walls can deliver +20% GI
5000 acres: Scotland's largest urban wildlife site

Regional Development Planning
Chicago v Glasgow
Quality places work well because the necessary physical
and social infrastructure is planned and provided
of the overall development programme."
“The design of external spaces is as important a masterplan consideration as the design of the buildings…
Unfortunately, in some proposals it was evident that the landscape had been dealt with as an afterthought, and that open spaces were residual – the parts left over once road and plot layouts had been determined”

14 regional 'hotspots'
Which would you prefer to live beside?
SUDS : a primary objective
should mimic natural drainage.
watercourses should stay open
existing culverts should be opened
impermeable surfaces should be minimised
Development plans should:
take the open space strategy into account
set out specific requirements for open space …how much, of what type and quality
Habitat Networks are important:
climate change adaptation.
protect and enhance
walkable access and shared spaces
Open space and other facilities:
accessible on foot and bicycle
Planners and developers:
identify opportunities to create networks between open spaces
Green & Open Space
Green & Open Space
community growth areas & other developments
4,500 homes to be built
a 'green' bridge across M73 is proposed
connecting people and wildlife
connecting east and west
connecting Glasgow and North Lanarkshire
Urban Form & Temperature
Overall Winner 2012
Active travel routes
Pedestrian priority street
Overseen play area
7 'clusters' designed for local use
7 Gateways - building on existing facilities
- sustainable urban drainage system
