On 17th May 2016, with support from William Lippe Architects and Malcolm Fraser, STP asked the towns network to get creative and sketch or photograph their ideas for one space on the high street - it should be innovative and creative yet practical and should look to provide genuine potential for development within town centres in the future. Whether a unique bin design or different use for public or vacant space…be creative!

The FutureTown Design Competition, part of Scotland’s Towns Week, is aimed at stimulating conversations and provoking ideas and new approaches to highlight what a possible future town could look like. We all used to live in town centres, why can't we live there again ? How can town centres stimulate low carbon and sustainable living; encourage digital and enterprise promoted tourism; culture, health and well-being; deliver connectivity and economic growth and ultimately become places of opportunity and choice for all?

FutureTown Design Competition 2015 winners, William Lippe Architects Ltd developed the winning design for Inverurie's Town Centre. The design looked to restore and improve the connection between Inverurie’s iconic Town Hall and Memorial Garden by recreating its original Town Square between the two. A place to relax, reflect, enjoy the hustle and bustle of Inverurie’s busy, thriving Town Centre. A safe flexible space to use for Inverurie events and markets.
