DOD Lecture Series: People, Place and Power


Chiara Ronchini shares examples of community heritage practice around Scotland and beyond. Chiara Ronchini is an architect and heritage professional focusing on community-led projects and sustainability in Scotland, and a consultant for UNESCO in Uzbekistan, Egypt, Croatia and Italy.

This lecture is part of the week-long Doors Open Days lecture series, organised by the Cockburn Association. Each day there are two lectures exploring different aspects of Edinburgh’s architectural heritage and global connections. On 28th and 29th September, 149 buildings across Edinburgh and East Lothian will be open to you to explore for free. Check out the programme on our website, or drop into your local library to pick up a physical copy.
