Abstract

This practice paper reflects on the national design advice service in Scotland that has been operated by Architecture & Design Scotland (A&DS) since 2005. Placed in the context of research on design review practice, the paper describes how design review in Scotland has evolved from a traditional panel model operating alongside a range of training and skills development functions into a more holistic and dynamic design advice service. The paper argues that the evolution of design review in Scotland signifies an innovative shift away from the often combative setting of a design panel, where the force of an argument frequently wins the day, towards a more measured, iterative and collaborative process of nurturing and enabling well-designed buildings and places.
