Bridgend Charrette complete
C3478aa7caab37c883bed6166d481197

We’ve just spent some time at Perth’s Left Bank where we completed a Charrette in Bridgend as part of the Scottish Government’s Town Centre Charrette initiative with fellow team members Nick Wright and Steven Tolson. The project was initiated by Perth & Kinross Council working with Bridgend, Gannochy and Kinnoull Community Council and the Left Bank Community Development Trust.


Well supported by the council’s regeneration team, as well as the chairs of the community council and the Left Bank trust, we gathered in Kinnoull Church Hall over tea and cake to create plans for the future of Bridgend (with thanks to the Bradshaws from Tea on the Tay for keeping us fed). We came away with lots of positive ideas and are busy working up proposals based on what we discussed. The image shown here is a vision for Perth and Bridgend featuring a new footbridge for the city linking the heart of the city centre with the Left Bank.

Our Work - In May, 7N signed the Architect’s Declare open letter which has been signed by over 625 architectural practices. Signing the Architect’s Declare letter involves endorsing eleven ‘pledges’ which range from advocacy and raising awareness of climate and biodiversity emergencies, to significant changes in working practices around carbon modelling, resource use and knowledge sharing. Like many others, we have turned the lens on the operations of our practice and our projects to better understand where we can make a real difference and how meaningful changes can be advocated and realised. Our research will be shared in a sustainability focused blog series to document this journey, but to mark today’s day of climate action we’re offering some initial findings along with links to information others may find useful and interesting ; to read the full article, visit our Journal page - link in bio.
