On 11 September 2014 at the Whisky Bond a packed audience enjoyed an amazing evening of projects, places and ideas that have all re-vitalised vacant land and public spaces. As part of the GREEN2014 programme Architecture and Design Scotland curated Pretty Vacant, where a range of speakers gave their own take on transforming vacant space, animating public space and urban food growing.
A+DS are leading the Stalled Spaces Scotland programme, aimed at supporting local authorities and communities to bring stalled spaces or derelict and vacant land back into temporary use. The event demonstrated what’s possible, sparked new ideas and will hopefully encourage future collaborations.
At only 6 mins and 40 seconds each it’s well worth watching them so please view the films to the right.
