Architecture and Design Scotland (A&DS) is Scotland’s national champion for good architecture, design and planning in the built environment. Our purpose is to promote the value good architecture and sustainable design adds to everyone’s lives. Our role is to help people – whether by enabling them to get more involved in shaping the places they live in or improving the design of the buildings they use. Well-designed buildings and places make the very best use of our resources and create places that help people and communities to flourish.
The purpose of the Library is to showcase sustainable, traditional and emerging low carbon building products in general and to promote and encourage innovation in construction in Scotland using indigenous resources.
