Willie Miller

Urban Designer


Willie Miller is an urban designer educated at Glasgow School of Art and the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture in Aberdeen. Based in Glasgow’s West End, Willie runs M-UD, a creative interdisciplinary consultancy specialising in the design and regeneration of urban and rural areas.


Established in 1996 as Willie Miller Urban Design and Planning, the practice has grown to accommodate specialisms in planning, regeneration, landscape and community consultation, as well as the core disciplines of urban design and masterplanning.

M-UD’s specialisms are most frequently brought into play at the level of the neighbourhood, small town or urban quarter, including town and district centres. The practice is highly collaborative and regularly augments its own capability with complementary skills from other practices.

Most UK settlements have been evolving for centuries. To regenerate them in a holistic way, we try to understand their structuring elements - streets, blocks, plots and spaces - and how these work together. We try to connect these physical building blocks with an appreciation of the structuring economic and social context - including the reality of local property markets. In addition we aim to integrate local services, health and education with transport and open space infrastructure. M-UD believe that thinking at the neighbourhood and small town level is the most appropriate way to secure realistic and deliverable solutions to which communities can relate.

The true meaning of special places comes from human experience, interpretation and understanding. It is obvious to us that community sensibilities should be reflected in the planning, design and management of old and new places. We don't ask that communities design. Rather, through careful facilitation, they provide their knowledge and inform our effort. We maintain a dialogue of ideas and options with a view to reaching a desirable and deliverable outcome. The plan-making process can take many months, but the place-making can take years.

Willie works regularly with Janet Benton.
