The Autumn 2017 AHSS Magazine
The Architectural Heritage Society of Scotland is delighted to announce that the latest issue of our magazine is now available.
This stunning front cover heralds the 200th anniversary of the birth of iconic Glasgow architect, Alexander Greek Thompson. We have teamed up with The Alexander Greek Thompson Society to bring you not only a fascinating feature piece on the architect’s contribution to the Greek Revival movement in Glasgow, but also a tear out walking tour of his finest projects. Not to be missed!
A word from our Editor Abigail Daly:
‘Glancing at this issue’s features, you wouldn’t imagine there was much linking them. Glasgow’s Greek-inspired architecture, James Craig and his Edinburgh New Town plans, tower blocks and industrial Ironbridge seem quite disparate. Reading them more closely, however, and some common themes emerge: each were created in a time of significant cultural, social and technological change, and each were architectural expressions of great optimism and hope for the future.’
