Unit One is a student collective as part of the Master in Architecture program at the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment in Robert Gordon University.

The unit is lead by Neil Lamb and Professor Bill Black of Richard Murphy Architects. 


Unit One has a legacy of working with partners on live projects to undertake research and produce strategic masterplans in relation to Aberdeen. Compelling concepts have been generated, where the outputs of the unit have challenged and informed the Council's own proposals. The unit acts as a provocateur in the sharing of collaborative responses and individual projects with all stakeholders.

The objective of each collective is to pursue the unit's interest in underlying urban themes by proposing strategies to strengthen the urban relationships across the city and to create visions for a revitalised Aberdeen’s post oil future.
