 Scottish Government publishes new policy on architecture and place
The Scottish Government has published its new policy on architecture and place this morning during a short ceremony at Hillhead Primary School, Glasgow.

Creating Places’ was unveiled by culture secretary Fiona Hyslop who expressed hope that the new document will help promote sustainable neighbourhoods and well-designed public services.

Speaking at the launch of the policy, A+DS Chair, Karen Anderson, said, “Architecture affects everyone – it can make the places and spaces we work, live and play in beautiful and functional and it can help grow our economy and improve our lives.

“By shaping our places architecture also says who we are as a nation. Architecture and placemaking can help us address the economic, social and environmental challenges we face in Scotland. This policy clearly demonstrates the Scottish Government’s commitment to architecture and place in Scotland.”

The launch follows conclusion of a public consultation on the document which has been underway over the past year.
