Heather Claridge, Director of Design, and Board member Alistair Scott, join a dozen-strong panel that will decide the Scottish Design Awards 2023.
The 2023 judging panel for the Scottish Design Awards was recently announced, showcasing a breadth of talent drawn from across the architecture and design professions. The line-up includes figures selected across construction and marketing sectors from agencies and practices to client-side and academia.
On the architecture front, this includes Heather Claridge, director of design at Architecture and Design Scotland, who will be seeking projects which 'successfully respond to local context and needs'. Claridge will also be on the hunt for entrants who 'creatively reuse existing assets and support a strong sense of place.'
Alistair Scott, co-founder, Smith Scott Mullan Associates and Architecture and Design Scotland board member, also joins the panel.
With the entry window already open the hand-picked team are on hand to offer some helpful tips and advice for early bird hopefuls by setting out what they are looking for from award-worthy work.
Entries are now open for the event, with early birds enjoying discounted rates until 10 March. www.scottishdesignawards.com
