A&DS and RIAS Scottish Student Awards for Architecture
18 July – 28 September 2013
The Lighthouse, Glasgow.
This year’s Architecture and Design Scotland Sust. Award for sustainable Design winners were Jonathan Phillips, Roseanne Knight & Stephanie Sharpe of ESALA for their project ”Towards an Integrated Garden City: A proposal to re-frame the post-industrial infrastructure, Manchester”
The project aims to reconnect Castlefield with the urban grain of Manchester through the reframing of the disused Great Northern Railway Viaduct into an active street, infusing it with building programme and open space – ‘The Brownway’.
This excellent project has sustainability at its very core. Re-working industrial age infrastructure to create a green route generates the context for intervention, including appropriately scaled and carefully designed housing.
also recognised for the Sust. Award were:
Andy Stewart – Scott Sutherland School
Resilient Towns (Re)Inhabiting Town Centres, Peterhead
Re-building dense, walkable urban fabric utilising a highly energy aware materials approach, delivers benefits to both individual inhabitants and a more cohesive community.
Rebecca Goodson – ESALA
Capturing Ephemeral Phenomena – Dalmarnock Civic Theatre Glasgow
Combining careful and appropriately scaled new build with the adaptive re-use of historic fabric, this sensitive and intelligent approach to re-making the city delivers sustainability in its materials and energy conservation. It also helps build a sustainable community.
This year’s judges were:
Angela Brady PPRIBA Hon FRIAS. Iain Connelly, RIAS President
Ian Gilzean, Principal Architect, Scottish Government

A&DS is delighted to continue to collaborate with RIAS to highlight the high quality of work from the best students from Scotland’s schools of architecture. A&DS aims to support emerging practitioners and these awards and the supporting exhibition, allow visitors to see the high standard of architecture emerging from our schools of architecture.

Scotland has a proud tradition of architectural excellence. Our annual student awards mark the extraordinarily high standard of architectural education in Scotland. Students from throughout the world come here and Scotland’s five schools of architecture are major contributors to the evolution of architecture throughout the world.
