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.

Students studying at Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment in session 2016-17 will be amongst the first to experience our brand new purpose-built building. The building enjoys state-of-the-art facilities that can be matched by very few schools of our kind in the UK. Take a look around the new school and watch a video showing some of our new facilities.
