Scott McAulay

Part 2 Architectural Assistant
BArch (Hons) DipArch

Scott joined Architype as a Part 2 architectural assistant in 2021, and is an expert in climate emergency education and climate literacy. With Architype, Scott’s focus has been on embodied carbon analysis, sustainability advice and climate action.

Scott’s interests in architecture lie in the opportunities that adaptation, construction, maintenance, and upgrade create to improve health and wellbeing and reduce carbon impact. Scott is a member of Architype’s climate action and training teams and is particularly interested in regenerative design.


Scott studied at the University of Strathclyde, starting his final year with an international exchange at the University of Dalhousie in Nova Scotia before completing his studies in 2019 in Scotland. While studying, Scott focused on healthy, low carbon materials - taking courses outside of university on green building technologies and learning practically as a volunteer on hempcrete and straw bale building sites. Scott is currently studying for a diploma in Retrofit Co-ordination and Risk Management with the Retrofit Academy CIC.

Climate Action

Scott began the Anthropocene Architecture School during 2019’s Architecture Fringe and has brought together thousands of students, educators and built environment professionals to learn about responding to the climate emergency. The impact of this work placed him in the RIBAJ Rising Stars cohort of 2020, and he has featured in architectural press internationally. Scott speaks about climate literacy and the intersection of architecture and the climate crisis at universities across the U.K, Canada, and the Netherlands.

Scott has long contributed to the activities of the Architects Climate Action Network as one of the coordinators of its Climate Literacy Working Group and is actively involved in its Scottish chapter.
