Nottingham and Derby Society of Architects

Exploring Architecture

Architecture is all around us. It is the house you live in, the place you work in, your school, your hospital, your street, your neighbourhood. It is the building block of the town or city in which you live.  Everyone has a relationship with architecture and good architecture helps make better lives.

Nottingham and Derby, the counties and the surrounding towns and villages have a unique architectural heritage and identity. Many of the unique buildings, materials and places have been born out of extraordinary circumstances that are specific to these places.

In our globalised world it is easy for our cities to become homogeneous. We must ask the question; what is the vision we want for the places and space in which we live and work?
