Take your first steps of 2021 with Urban Realm as we explore how an abrupt shift to home working is fueling a radical rethink of the very definition of the office. In a few short months the commercial sector has come a long way but is the destination clear?


  • UR100
    Urban Realm is dusting off our biggest industry survey as we look to cap a turbulent year by identifying those practices which have done most to establish a more sustainable, resilient and happier built environment.
  • Building Typologies
    With COP26 only a year away and sustainability being embedded in architectural education and practice, Leslie Howson suggests that Scotland`s architects and students of architecture should now be turning their attention to rethinking building typologies, to deal more effectively with the urgency of climate change and Covid-19.
  • Peter Womersley
    We explore the legacy of Peter Womersley in the context of '60s and 70's Scottish and UK architecture, to the current state of his buildings such as the Bernat Klein studio and Dingleton boilerhouse.
  • Post-pandemic housing
    As we all reassess the importance of home Urban Realm explores the impact of the virus on our personal space. How can we live healthier, happier and harmoniously?
  • Post-pandemic offices
    Despite hyperbolic claims of the death of the office, the humble workplace is likely to reclaim its crown as the default environment for productivity going forward. We assess what forms the future office will take and what changes will get us there.
  • Rural Realm
    As the Scottish Government consults on proposed extensions to permitted development rights to make it simpler to convert existing agricultural buildings we investigate if this is the best way to energise the rural economy and bring derelict buildings back into use.
  • Growth Spurt
    Against a backdrop of recession, one practice is bucking the trend with an aggressive expansion plan which will take them from Bridgeton to Birmingham, Belfast and Bristol. We speak to Hoko Design founder Danny Campbell to see what opportunities can be found in times of adversity.
  • Nairn
    In the near-decade since Nairn was nominated for a Carbuncle award, the town continues to offer more than its fair share of contentious planning decisions, poor judgement and ill-advised plans. We look at what has changed - and what hasn't.
