About

The Autumn School at Hospitalfield in Arbroath will enable professionals, local people and enthusiasts to spend time together to consider the opportunities and challenges in developing well designed housing in a way that meets economic imperatives. Good design begins with the master-plan and considers sustainability in all its aspects; from the materials used to the way in which the communities evolve and diversify and the existing towns flourish.

Key note Friday 22nd September Malcolm Fraser
Dinner - stay the night in or around Arbroath or camp at Hospitalfield
Saturday 23rd September breakfast followed by a full day of talks workshops and discussions ending with a drink

An exhibition of models of dream houses made with local schools will be a backdrop exhibition to the Autumn School.

Although to themes of the School will be universal it is interesting to take Angus as an example: this is a region of historic market towns where there will be much house building over the coming years. Angus will become a dormitory for Dundee and Aberdeen so now is the time to think about how we want this region to look in years to come:

How do we influence and achieve good sustainable design ? How can we ensure that the master planning process gives proper consideration to evolving sustainable and diverse communities ? How will this development support and enable the town centres in a region like this to thrive and grow?
