The Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment

To be valued by society, better buildings and physical environments must be genuinely better places in which to live, work or play.

At The Scott Sutherland School of Architecture & Built Environment, we see it as our social responsibility to design and build stimulating, sustainable and well-considered structures and spaces that reflect society's aspirations.
