SEDA Krystyna Johnson Award 2015 Exhibition 23 Oct – 13 Jan
Noticed Board - Level 2

The Krystyna Johnson Award enters it’s fourth year and is open to all second year architectural students across all five Scottish Schools of Architecture, to encourage ecological design in the mainstream. Projects put forward by the schools in 2015 ranged both in content and location, they included a biking centre in Inverness; a futuristic library in St Andrews; a place of shelter in Beith; an ecological primary school; and an Edinburgh community brewery. SEDA are happy to announce that our 2015 overall winner is Olivia Page from the Mackintosh School of Architecture for her project in Beith.

This years exhibition of students work will be opened with the inaugural Howard Liddell lecture. Professor Sandy Halliday of Gaia Research will launch the series of lectures dedicated to her late husband. Paying respect to eco-pioneers, she will question whether, with everything to gain, ecological design is still marginalised and largely perceived as counter cultural. As evidence suggests that we continue to ignore science and common sense, Sandy will reflect on whether we will ever be able to create a radical change of direction toward genuine development for all.
