Future proof living - student submission

As part of the Scottish Governments Year of Young People 2018 we asked for entries from the emerging generation of designers and architects.

This design awards category focuses on design solutions which meet the changing demographics of Aberdeenshire. The schemes should demonstrate how it provides for the needs of ageing occupants generally or can focus on specific needs such as mobility, social isolation, wellbeing, health, dementia.

Semi-finalist nominations Aberdeenshire Design Award 2018

We received 7 submissions from students. Each entry consisted of 2 PDF files in A1 format showcasing the design. One of the PDFs had to include a supporting statement explaining how the design complies with the judging criteria. You can view details submitted with each entry on this page.

The scheme will be judged not only on the buildings design but also the innovative solutions proposed to address the issues raised by these complex requirements and its ability to take a fresh look at the way health and social care services could be delivered in the future.
