    Abstract

    In recent years there has been a strong focus on the impact of research on policy and practice within the UK. The devolved government in Scotland has been particularly supportive of innovation and change relating to environmental improvement and this has been seen for example in the creation of Architecture & Design Scotland (A&DS) to champion good practice in architecture and design. The 2016, year-long 'Festival of Architecture' provides a plethora of opportunities to celebrate and reflect on the richness of Scottish architecture, as part of the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design, and a catalyst to generate a discourse on architecture and design pedagogy.
