Nearly 400 youngsters from six primary schools – Albyn, Heathryburn, Kittybrewster, Middleton Park, Robert Gordon’s College and Skene Square – took part in a project to design their ideal shop for Union Street.

Supported by The Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment and the Aberdeen Society of Architects, they produced drawings and models to show how their premises would look.

The project was run as part of the Union Street Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (CARS), which is supported by Aberdeen City Council, Historic Environment Scotland and Aberdeen Inspired.

It was developed by the Council’s CARS officer, the Aberdeen Urban Studies Trust, and the Aberdeen City Heritage Trust.
