“Scots” Architecture – Crichton Wood

Scotland had its own native architecture with a critical period 1570 -1620 when architects explored complex spatial and aesthetic principles well ahead of their time. Architect Crichton Wood will show Robert Adam flirting with the style, David Bryce developing the style, both in bad and good ways, and Macintosh & Lorimer continuing and developing the Scots style. He will then show from his own work ways to continue and develop a Scots style, showing the potential but also the dangers.
