Event description

Description

As part of 'A Summer Meeting': A rare opportunity to visit 14 Ramsay Garden, designed and built in the 1890’s as the family home of Patrick Geddes, when much of the Old Town of Edinburgh was a slum. Now, the Royal Mile is a tourist heritage destination, and 14 Ramsay Garden (born out of an initiative to engage university professors, students, and the local community) is, like many residencies of the Royal Mile, a holiday apartment.

Tours of the Geddes home offer insights into his ideas about families and communities, cities and landscapes, and about how we should live in them, and with them.

Including:

2pm: Historian and activist, Jim Slaven: The Home as a Site of Social Activism

4pm: Architectural historian & writer, Prof Edward Hollis: ‘Domestic Geddes’ an exploration of the Patrick Geddes city region in the home

With additional support from Russell Architecture Ltd. and the National Trust for Scotland.
