NDA Archive Gets Planning

Reiach and Hall Architects are delighted that designs for the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA)’s archive have been granted planning permission by Highland Council.

The new build facility, designed for a brownfield site near Wick Airport, is intended to store around 28,000 linear metres of paper and photographic records primarily concerning the history, development and decommissioning of the UK’s civil nuclear industry since the 1940s. The building will also provide a new home for the Caithness Archive.

The brief was to create a building of simple practicality. The ambition was to create a powerful and enduring building which was inviting and welcoming to the public. Set in the vast open Caithness landscape, the design aims to provide bold and dramatic form. A line that describes both the diagonal of the site and its alignment with North has generated a triangular building with accommodation arranged around a string of landscaped courts.

The NDA has appointed Morrison Construction and building will start on site in 2015, with completion due by the end of 2016.

Scotland + Venice in Scotland

Reiach and Hall follow up their contribution to the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale with a return to Scotland and the opportunity to continue the conversations on Scottish Modernism with a local audience. Hosted by Architecture+Design Scotland at The Lighthouse, the Scotland and Venice exhibition showcases the diverse projects shown by Scotland in Venice since 2004 during its International Architecture Biennale.

The 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale entitled Absorbing Modernity 1914–2014 considered research into past histories as a way of reconstructing how architecture has arrived at its current situation and how we might speculate on its future. In response, Neil Gillespie led ‘Past + Future’ and relied on research by four groups, each comprising a practicing architect, an academic and two students, into aspects of modernity in Scottish architecture within the post-war period, 1950–1970.

The return to Scotland was accompanied by a final publication which allowed the groups to reflect on their time in Venice and the modernist architecture studies on show at the Biennale.
