aLL Design's programme of "big architecture" continues bold form making at the scale of the urban quarter. Regeneration projects such as Croydon, Bradford and Barnsley require a re-imagining of what the city can be, working with and enhancing local topography and the grain of historic development.

Other sites, such as Masdar or Middlehaven, offer a canvas on which bold form-finding can define a new character based on the genius loci.
