Talks & Ideas

DOD Lecture Series: Scots Baronial meets the New York Five

Friday 27 September 19:00-20:00


Architect Crichton Wood will discuss the key concepts of Scots baronial architecture used in the work of American Architect and theorist, Louis Kahn, including expressive relationships between form and function, and geometric plan transformations. Wood will also discuss the impact of Kahn’s use of Baronial architecture on other American architects of the 20th Century, showing how some of these concepts can be used to develop a modern "Scots," architecture.

This lecture is part of the week-long Doors Open Days lecture series. 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.
