Talk: Repairing our Postwar Libraries
DATE: 19/1/2015
The National Library of Scotland (NLS) has recently undertaken extensive repairs at its main building on Edinburgh´s George IV Bridge. The building is category A listed, as an outstanding example of 20th century architecture. Now, the NLS is embarking on its next big project: Its Causewayside Building, dating from the 1980s and of equally interesting design, is in urgent need of repair and improvement. Docomomo Scotland has invited Linda MacMillan, Programme Manager at the NLS, and Dermot Patterson, Partner at LDN Architects, to present these two exciting construction projects, discussing conservation and technical challenges.

The talk will take place at the Royal Incorporation of the Architects in Scotland (RIAS), at 15 Rutland Square, Edinburgh, EH1 2BE. Light lunch and non-alcoholic drinks will be provided at 12:30pm, with the talk taking place between 1pm and 2pm.
