All next week, we’ll be having an architecture special on the website called Building and Landscape. Throughout this series we explore the controversy that often surrounds the reuse of old buildings, and look at what goes into projects that aim to restore and reinvigorate older forms of architecture.
Delving into our archive, we’ll be showcasing episodes of Cityscape, a pioneering series produced by Justin Russell and Francesca Atkinson for Edinburgh Television from 2000. The series set out to contrast planning and conservation with local needs and to open-out the language used to evaluate buildings, their merit and aesthetic.
Having the luxury of working in an exciting arts venue such as Summerhall, which was formerly the Royal Dick Vet School, architecture is a subject close to our hearts, and one that is easy to explore living in such an interesting and historic city like Edinburgh.
