SEDA Annual Review 2015

The 2015 SEDA annual review is now available to download.

At the core of SEDA are the drivers of fostering a community of likeminded people, promoting research and innovation, influencing policy, informing the public and managing our affairs efficiently. Based on this structure, we continue to build the size and influence of SEDA.

Over the last 12 months, we have increased the numbers of events, in more places and with more people attending. The exciting SEDAbuild School project continues to evolve. The pilot project is close to completion and we are working on the next phase of its development. The magazine continues to increase in stature and influence – based on a key issue, it forms an intellectual backdrop and loose theme for events such as Green Drinks and visits. The research conference in April brought academics and practitioners together to present new ideas and research. Show and Tell inspired us with cutting edge ecological design from across Scotland and further afield. Now in its third year, the revitalised KJ award continues to inspire students from Scotland's architecture schools.

As my term as SEDA Chair comes to an end, my thanks go to the team of people who have invested vast amounts of time, energy and enthusiasm into the success of SEDA, including directors, staff and volunteers. Looking forward, Chris Stewart takes the reigns, with great ambitions, through the Festival of Architecture in 2016, by developing SEDABuild School into a permanent fixture and increasing the stature and accessibility of our events.

If you have any feed back or ideas, please contact us directly on chair@seda.uk.net. I hope you enjoy our 2015 activities
