As part of Scotland's Sustainable Communities Initiative, The Royal Incorporation of Architects is hosting a design competition that combines sustainability and reductions in carbon emissions with a sensitive response to place and context.
Specifically, the organization is seeking to establish a ‘new vernacular’ for Scottish architecture that demonstrates how environmentally-sensitive designs might influence both the architecture and urban layout of contemporary development.
“The design and development of sustainable housing is at the heart of what this Government wants for communities across Scotland. This Design Competition is an exciting opportunity for practices to come forward with bold and challenging architecture that can contribute to sustainable development and the fight against climate change," said Culture Minister Fiona Hyslop.
“I look forward to seeing high-quality and creative responses developed for Scotland. What is different about this competition is that designs, while inspiring and innovative, must be realistic and commercially viable. Designing original and inventive buildings that can be realised and replicated is a vital element in supporting the construction sector to deliver the low-carbon communities that Scotland needs.”
