Galashiels Mapping Workshops
In consultation for Architecture and Design Scotland (A&DS), we facilitated the delivery of a series of workshops for groups of school children to explore mapping and design techniques for the grounds around their school. Working with children and staff at Galashiels Academy, we ran a series of workshops over two linked phases, in order to inform and produce concepts and briefs for the grounds and adjacent areas.
The workshops sought to find out from the children and staff which areas would be most valuable for improvement and enhancement projects. The project is part of a review programme being undertaken by Scottish Borders Council of their school grounds and resources, in the context of the Curriculum for Excellence. We produced mapping resources and collated ideas from the workshops into presentation plans and proposals.
