To celebrate its 50th anniversary our Glasgow studio is holding a number of Big Conversation events which aim to create a lively and challenging forum to discuss key issues affecting design in the built environment now. The second in this studio series looks at the subject of Lifelong Learning: Education Beyond the Classroom, exploring Scotland’s vision for the development and delivery of inspirational education buildings. BDP North Chair Sue Emms will present on the evolution of schools in the community, having been responsible for the design of some of the practice’s most successful award-winning schools, and will also give an overview of the practice’s education sector. She will be joined by Glasgow studio architect director Lindsey Mitchell and associate Sandra Gallagher who will talk about our key Scottish education projects including the recently completed Maidenhill Primary school which is shortlisted for the upcoming Glasgow Institute of Architects Awards. Guest speaker is Stephen Long, associate director of education at Scottish Futures Trust, who will discuss the Scottish government’s Learning Estate Strategy to support the creation of world-class learning environments which are also vibrant community hubs.
Breakfast will be provided and following the presentations there will be an opportunity for a general discussion and networking. Future events in the series will focus on a wide range of topics including BIM, Transport and Learning and will be publicised later in the year.
