The Scott Sutherland School will be transformed into a creative hub, showcasing exciting and inspiring projects from architecture and architectural technology students including students from the BSc (Hons) Architectural Technology course, BSc Architecture / Masters of Architecture (MArch) and the MSc Advanced Architectural Design.

Work from Masters of Architeture student, 23 year old Maxwell Wilson from the village of Lhanbryde, outside of Elgin, Moray. Maxwell’s Master’s project is part of the University’s Pomona framework for Finstown in Orkney which aims to revive the town and provide a sustainable community for islanders. He creates a horticulture greenhouse that would be used to grow locally produced herbs and spices. These would be used in an adjoining gin distillery. A 3rd greenhouse would provide residential training thereby creating jobs in the community:

This is the first on-campus exhibition since the start of the pandemic and follows two years of digitalised events.

Head of School, Professor David McClean will open an exclusive launch event on Friday 6 May at 4pm. This will feature a selection of student presentations and a pop-up-market showcasing projects from across the School, to members of the University community, and friends and family of the students.

The #ScottsEndofYearShow is free to attend and opens fully to the public on Monday 9 May, 10am until 4pm. It will run weekdays until Friday 20 May, taking place at The Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment.

Work from Master of Architecture student, Cameron Duncan from Edinburgh. He’s designed a ’15-minute green corridor centred around a zero-carbon, sustainable community and a new and imaginative high level walkway in Torry, Aberdeen:

The exhibition features a range of exciting and ambitious ideas, thinking and future development opportunities for Aberdeen, Orkney and the Western Isles. Whilst hypothetical in nature, they are grounded in rigorous research.

One of those exhibiting, Part Two architecture student, Emily Grundy from Laurencekirk, Aberdeenshire, said: “I’m really excited to be taking part in the end of year show and can’t wait to share my ideas for Torry.

Work from Part Two Architecture student, Emily Grundy from Laurencekirk, Aberdeenshire. Her work focuses on reviving the Torry area of Aberdeen with a new, interactive river front, with open spaces and a vibrant esplanade along the River Dee:

“The creation of new Nigg Bay Harbour and the removal of the original industrial harbour, which once defined Torry as a stuck and distant place, offers new hope for the area. Torry has so much potential for live, work and play. I’ve highlighted many possible paths of improvements including a new, interactive river front, with open spaces and a vibrant esplanade along the River Dee. This would help foster a sense of community in Torry and attract tourists to the area.”

Masters in Architecture student, 23 year-old Maxwell Wilson, from the village of Lhanbrydge, near Elgin, is also exhibiting. Maxwell’s Master’s project is part of the University’s Pomona framework for Finstown in Orkney which aims to revive the town and provide a sustainable community for islanders.

As he makes the final preparations for the exhibition, Maxwell says: “RGU and The Scott’s School of Architecture has really prepared me for going out into practice. Everything has been practical and helpful; I feel confident going out to look for work with everything I have learned. I’m really looking forward to presenting my work as part of the Scott Sutherland End of Year Show, Ideas for Living.”

Professor David McClean, Head of School, said: “I’m delighted to be opening The Scott Sutherland End of Year Show, Ideas for Living. Our students and staff have worked so hard over the past year as we have emerged from the pandemic, and the creative propositions on display offer fresh, positive thinking on the theme of developing sustainable communities across a breadth of contexts.”

“As one of the most established schools of architecture & built environment in the UK, our undergraduate and postgraduate course portfolio offers students a unique skill set that fosters innovative design thinking in making proposals that enhance sense of place and reflect society’s aspirations. It’s fantastic to be showcasing their work and I’d encourage everyone to come along to see the work of the next generation of professionals for themselves.”
