How can architects, designers and fabricators collaborate better to produce a range of materials and forms that are more responsive to Scotland’s urban and rural environments? Jude Barber and Dafni Michalaki of Collective Architecture, one of the country’s leading architecture studios, invite you to explore the possibilities of four raw materials – brick, concrete, sheet metal, and wood.

To illustrate their design process, Jude and Dafni will invite key fabricators and suppliers of these materials to join them in conversation. During the workshop, the architects and fabricators will share examples of their process and illustrate this through samples, sketch architectural models and collaborative projects with artists and designers such as Martin Boyce, Toby Paterson and Graphical House. They will invite participants to get up close and handle raw materials, consider their properties and imagine their design possibilities.
