What we do

Architecture and Design Scotland (A+DS) is Scotland's champion for excellence in architecture, placemaking and planning. We celebrate good architecture and design and work with a range of communities to shape the places we all value.
We deliver our work through encouraging and inspiring the public to get involved with architecture through exhibitions, events and workshops, we offer informed advice to those responsible for the development of our places and we promote sustainable approaches to building and placemaking.
