Autumn 2021 Magazine

AHSS Magazine Autumn 2021 is now available online

The Autumn issue covers a wide range of topics, including education, skills, and climate change.

In the main features, John Coyne looks at how the carbon emissions of new and old buildings are calculated. Jocelyn Cunliffe reports on the AHSS’s responses to two recent consultations on the energy efficiency of traditional buildings and the skills required for their maintenance and repair. In 2020, Kimahew Education Trust acquired the 140-acre Kilmahew Estate – in the third feature, Ally Cotton, the Executive Chair of Kilmahew Education Trust, lays out their vision for the site. In the fourth main feature, S6 student Phoebe Vendil interviews Ruth Hamilton, the coordinator of ‘Archischools,’ a project that aims to engage children and young people with the built environment.

Elsewhere in the magazine: Bill Paterson, AHSS’s new Patron, picks his favourite building. Plus, book reviews, activity reports from Historic Environment Scotland, Heritage Trust Network and Community Land Scotland, as well as reports on our casework.
