Description

This year’s event combines the conference and Doolan Award for Best Building in Scotland on Friday 4th October 2019. Climate of Opinion takes place in Edinburgh with a day of discussion, debate and celebration around designing for climate resilience, diversity and northern Europe. The A&DS and RIAS student awards ceremony will also take place and the students will exhibit their work. In the evening you can join our convention speakers, the Scottish government and Doolan family in the stunning surroundings of the National Museum of Scotland to celebrate the best building in Scotland award, presented by cabinet secretary Aileen Campbell. The event will be rounded off on the Saturday morning with building visits and a city tour exploring some of Edinburgh’s award-winning architecture.
