The 2014 Design Skills Symposium took place at the Emirates Arena, Glasgow on 20-21 March 2014.
The Symposium sought learning from preparations for the Glasgow 2014, XX Commonwealth Games, highlighting transferrable lessons for all of Scotland’s places.
The investments and initiatives related to the games are influencing transformational change in many places and communities. On the basis of the learning points emerging, the 2014 Design Skills Symposium explored how a focus on a design led approach to the smarter use of assets, the creation of healthy sustainable neighbourhoods and community empowerment can help to build the conditions for greater urban and economic resilience.
The event was developed and delivered by Architecture + Design Scotland in partnership with the Scottish Government, Glasgow City Council and Clyde Gateway.
The symposium was the first event from A+DS’s programme of activity exploring the sustainability legacy of the 2014 Commonwealth Games. More information can be found here.
The Lighthouse, Level 2, Glasgow will act as a Hub for the programme from March to September 2014. Sign up for regular updates on related events and exhibitions www.ads.org.uk.
