Designers in Scotland have called for a review of PFI to take address the question of building design.
The concerns were expressed by respondents to a consultation document put out by the Scottish Executive. The executive is attempting to develop a national policy on architecture.

Respondents criticised PFI and PPP for not providing "an appropriate framework for good design".

Other suggestions put forward by designers centred on the curriculum of architectural courses, which they said did not give sufficient emphasis to managerial studies, urban design and planning.

The comments are contained in a report on the consultation, The Development of a Policy on Architecture for Scotland.
