The Scott Sutherland School will be transformed into a creative hub at this popular annual end-of-year event, with architecture and architectural technology students from the BSc (Hons) Architectural Technology course, BSc Architecture / Masters of Architecture (MArch), BSc (Hons) Quantity Surveying & Commercial Management and the MSc Advanced Architectural Design showcasing their ideas.

Members of the public are encouraged to visit the exhibition to see an innovative collection of projects, with many offering new visions to support the North East’s transition to a net zero future and ideas to develop Orkney and the Western Isles.

Dean of the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture & Built Environment, Professor Peter Exley, said: “Our End of Year Show gives serious insight into the future, illustrating resilient places and spaces that benefit the public, civic, and commercial partners. At the opening, you can engage with future professionals about sustainable visions that you, your company, and your city can adopt as we collectively create an accessible, sustainable, and inclusive world.

“As one of the most established schools of architecture and built environment in the UK, we offer undergraduate and postgraduate students a unique skill set that fosters innovative design and encourages a strong social ethos that facilitate sustainable and well-considered structures and spaces that reflect society’s aspirations.”

The event will bring together the Scott Sutherland School community and industry experts from Architecture and the Built Environment sector. It will also include student discussions, a prize-giving celebration and networking opportunities.

The exhibition opens at 16:00 – 18:00 on 2 May and is free to attend. All members of the pubic are welcome. Visitors should register their car details with the main reception upon arrival.
