Architectural Heritage XXVII

2017 Architectural Heritage Journal

Our online version has been amended. 

This edition of the Architectural Heritage Journal, edited by Sally Rush, Mark Cousins, Aonghus MacKechnie and Diane Watters, features articles dedicated to a variety of subjects related to built heritage in Scotland, from Late Georgian architectural styles to an unbuilt twentieth century Edinburgh opera house.

 ‘The volume opens with a study by Antony Wolffe and Richard Agnew of two houses in Hensol and Glenlee Park … which reflect the variety of stylistic options available to the Late Georgian client. Antony Wolffe, a former President and Honorary Member of the AHSS, worked as architect on both houses. Clarisse Desmarest reveals the hidden building history of Kinross House through her work on the correspondence of Mary Halket, wife of the owner-architect, Sir William Bruce, who emerges as the unacknowledged Clerk of Works for the Kinross site. Aonghus MacKechnie reconstructs the poignant context and architectural form of the Celtic revival in Scotland. Louise Harrington traces progressive solutions to the history problem of slum housing in the city of Cork back to public housing initiatives in Scotland through the work of the architect Daniel Andrew Levie who trained in Aberdeen. Finally, Alastair Fair raises the phantom of the long-imagined Edinburgh Opera House and explains why it was never built.’
