New schools in ‘Family of Schools’ exhibition

Sgoiltean Ùra are delighted to announce that the four new Primary Schools at Point, West Side, Balivanich and Daliburgh – an integral part of the Western Isles Schools Project – were recently selected for inclusion in the Architecture + Design Scotland ‘Family of Schools’ Exhibition.

Shown at the Lighthouse in Glasgow, the exhibition sought to demonstrate a regional approach to the delivery of education facilities based on the culture, community and topography of the area, and which delivered school designs that are effective and relevant for Scotland. A video presentation of the approach taken by 3DReid Architects, the lead designers of the Western Isles Schools project, was shown as part of the exhibition Architecture + Design Scotland is Scotland’s champion for excellence in place making, architecture & planning. The Schools Programme is fundamentally about giving architectural meaning to their objective of putting the child and the community at the heart of design.
