Aberdeenshire Architectural and Landscape Design Awards

The eleventh biennial Aberdeenshire Architectural and Landscape Design Awards (AALDA) will be held in 2018 and we are now seeking nominations. 

As a council we are passionate about ensuring that our built environment is of the highest quality, fuelled by cutting edge design which ensures that people are at the heart of all developments in our area. The environment in which we live is of the upmost importance, human beings thrive in buildings and developments where both functionality and beauty are considered equally. The awards seek to highlight and encourage great design.

This year, as part of the Scottish Government’s Year of Young People, we are asking the next generation of designers and architects to focus on the needs of our older residents. The Student Award asks that those at the start of their careers conceptualise a dementia friendly living development.
