Architecture and Design: 6000 years of innovation in Stirling and Central Scotland (a co-production with the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at the University of Stirling).
A panel of experts explore innovations in architecture and design that have impacted the course of history.
Three specialists will present insights into Scotland's past through architecture and artefacts from three key periods in history. We invite you to hear their choices from 6000 years of game changing innovation and invention and to participate by voting for the most significant and best-argued examples, from ancient times to the present day.
A discussion will follow the speakers' short presentations, covering fifteen examples of innovation in design and architecture from Central Scotland, ranging from the infamous to the undiscovered. Each speaker will include at least one building and one artefact (locally found or locally manufactured) in their choice of topics contemporary to each period; prehistory, medieval, and modern.
The evening will be chaired by Jane Cameron (Art Curator at the University of Stirling).
The three specialists at the event will be:
Diane Watters, Architectural Historian, Historic Environment Scotland
Murray Cook, Archaeologist, Stirling Council
Richard Oram, Medieval and Environmental Historian, Dean of Arts and Humanities at University of Stirling
Doors open at 17:45, and there will be drinks and thanks at the end of the event at 8pm.
This event is free to attend and is open to all but places should be booked in advance here.
