Forests and Landscapes Network - Can land use decision-making tools be effective?

Digital tools are promoted as a way to inform decisions about land use change for the mitigation of biodiversity loss and climate change. But there is still a lack of clarity about how these tools work and how they are used by decision makers, including land managers.

Sustaining Rural Architecture

Rural Scotland is a charged landscape, alive with history and doused in myth. For city dwellers the countryside is a retreat for refuge and decompression, but it is also a place where infrastructures strain to reach and in which livings must be made.

The countryside is resistant to easy explanation and is thus vulnerable to stereotyping. How do we make meaningful work that responds to landscape and cultures that are diverse and sometimes perplexing, and what does this mean for the profession of architecture?
