Four new members join Architecture and Design Scotland board
Cabinet Secretary for culture, tourism and external affairs Fiona Hyslop has announced the appointment of four new members of the board of Architecture and Design Scotland (A&DS).
Angela Bonney, Daisy Narayanan, Bruce Ross and Alistair Scott will join the board following a recruitment process.
With more than ten years’ experience in communications, Angela Bonney currently manages public relations and communications for RICS in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Daisy Narayanan is deputy director for Sustrans Scotland and since April 2018, she has been on secondment to City of Edinburgh Council, appointed to lead the city centre transformation programmes.
Bruce Ross is a practising architect with experience of living, working, learning and teaching in Edinburgh, Glasgow, London and, more recently, the Highlands. He is a principal architect at an award-winning local authority design consultancy and has extensive experience in community and stakeholder engagement.
A practising architect with experience ranging from individual buildings to large scale urban regeneration projects, Alistair Scott founded Edinburgh-based Smith Scott Mullan Associates.
Architecture and Design Scotland is a government-funded agency that aims to help people – whether by getting them more involved in shaping the places they live in or improving the design of the buildings they use.
Ann Allen, chair of A&DS, said “I am delighted to be joined by four new board members. I look forward to working with them to shape Scotland’s built environment. Our new board members each represent different aspects of the built environment or relevant professional expertise. We look forward to working together to demonstrate and celebrate how great design can make Scotland’s built environment better for everyone.”
The appointments will be for up to four years in the first instance and are formally effective from April 15.
