Best Use of Timber Awards 2016 19 Dec 2016 – 30 Apr
Sust. Gallery - Level 2

As part of the annual RIAS Awards scheme, Forestry Commission Scotland and Wood for Good have combined to sponsor an award aimed at encouraging innovative and creative use of timber in new buildings in Scotland. The exhibition showcases the winning and shortlisted entries from across Scotland.

The award seeks to stimulate greater appreciation of home grown timber and its potential for use in construction, with added consideration given to thoughtful and appropriate use of different species. Technical competence is of course paramount and the design and detail of how the timber is used was as much a part of the assessment criteria as imagination and overall architectural excellence. There is no restriction on building type or scale of project – from small to large and from domestic to commercial, the challenge is to show how suited the use of timber is to the development of new architecture in Scotland.

This exhibition and publication has been curated by Architecture and Design Scotland on behalf of Forestry Commission Scotland and Wood for Good.
