Architecture and Design Scotland has started a new event series called Place Forum. 

We aim to bring together a diverse range of practitioners and decision-makers from all sectors and all parts of the country to discuss real-life examples of the Place Principle in action.

The forum provides professionals, community groups and local authorities with a platform to share experiences and learning and capture issues related to place-based working.

The role of retrofit and zero carbon buildings

Our second Place Forum focuses on the role of retrofit and zero-carbon buildings in creating carbon conscious places in Scotland.

We are bringing together a variety of speakers from across the country to share their experiences of delivering projects related to retrofit and zero-carbon buildings in Scotland and examples of collaborative approaches to carbon conscious places.

This event also provides attendees with the opportunity to ask our guest speakers questions and listen in to fruitful discussions around delivering better places through a whole-place collaborative approach.

This event will be held online on Microsoft teams.
