Exchange Square is the culmination of DSDHA’s Broadgate Public Realm Framework for British Land, which has demonstrated the crucial role the public realm can play in establishing a new identity for a site. Fundamental to its success is breaking down perceived barriers to surrounding areas of the City, and being more receptive to the needs of a wider variety of people. It encourages the use of these public spaces through new planting, seating, lighting, high-quality materials, and more opportunities for temporary uses and events. A comprehensive analysis of pedestrian movement helped to identify barriers to access – including steps, changes in level, poor signage, and lack of visual contrast and changes in tactility – to provide a space that is completely accessible to all.
