Visit Scotland’s themed year of Architecture, Design and Innovation and a perfect catalyst to try and start what we all hope will be an annual event to tie in with Monachyle Mhor’s annual food and music festival.
We invited twelve young designers to come and stay at Monachyle Mhor, some of them recently graduate architects, some of them current final year students and all with a passion to not only think of something but to also build something.
We talked a lot, explored the landscape, arranged ourselves into groups, drank some wine and then started drawing. After lots of discussion, lots of food and late at night our young creative minds went home and started to develop their ideas together. Just to focus their minds and to establish some boundaries each group was given a set amount of building materials – everything they designed would have to be made from this list.
